What do you mean by inner maxi fuse box? have you checked the smaller fuse box 2 in the same area as the main fuse box within the engine bay? there is only one with 80amp on it if i recall
hi you can lift the fuse carrier from under bonnet main fuse box by opening some clips and the maxifuses are underneath they are all ok is this the fusebox 2 you are refering to ?
The main maxi fuse holder is at the base of the top fuse panel front in the engine bay.the main ecu with the 3 plugs is in front of it - you can lift the main fuse panel as you have done to see them.so it seems you've already checked them..there is only one 80amp maxi on that board..you need to be 100% sure is still intact.if you had a test light some of the fuses have small metal tabs on the top of them and see if the light comes on on both sides of the fuse as that will tell you the fuse is fine..id say at least remove it and check it..but first off it would be ideal to leave everything as it is for 3 minutes rule "drivers window down first" then remove the battery negitive terminal after 3minutes is up as this lets everything bsi power down . then inspect the fuses again..if intact then refit everything back and reconnect battery and wait 15minutes before restarting the car and check to see if the power steering as reset after disconnecting battery.. if not then you need to dig deeper into the fault
there are 6 maxi fuses under fuse panel 3x30amp,3x60 amp, no 80 amp
hi, vin number is ***** if this helps
Ok..ive been through the wiring diagram/location of the maxi fuses accroding to vin and it seems to be the same for some odd reason - it only shows your top main board/then the card as they define with the maxi fuses along the front underneath..in fact there was a technical service bullitin covering the 207 regarding replacing it from 70amp to 80amp to rectify a simliar fault with fault code F047 logged in regards ***** ***** of steering..
apart from that i cant find anything else..bar the option of plug in diagnoses to see what kind of fault it is.as it more common for the control module/motor itself to fail than anything eslse..
But i can opt-out and maybe another expert may have an idea....
Hi ,thank you for your help i will book it in for fault code reading tommorrow and take it from there .
P.S. Would you like an update later this week to see how i got on (for future reference ? )
