Xantia Electrics problem

Post by madpenguin » 05 Jun 2002, 19:00

Hi all,
I have a 94 Xantia TDSX with an electrical fault. Fuse 12 blows as soon as you turn the ignition key to the position where the preheaters etc kick in.
I have looked in the useless haynes manual and there seems to be quite a few inconsistencies between the fuse chart and the circuit diagrams. The fuse chart says fuse 12 supplies heating, alarm, instruments etc and yet the diagrams show it has things to do with headlights, washer fluid, etc.
Does anyone out there know exactly what hangs off fuse 12 so that I can start to try and diagnose the problem or if anyone has had the same problem, can they tell me what caused it on their car?
I have disconnected the alarm control box from under the passenger seat already which made no difference.
I have spoken to my local dealer who said that they have seen it before but they can't tell me and they would need to do a half hour investigation for £25 to tell me.
Many thanks.

Well, here goes again:
http://citroeny.cz/servis/xantiaser/ele ... _do_98.gif
is the circuit diagram for the xantia turbodiesel. Unfortunately most of the text is in Russian or German, though if you can understand a circuit diagram it should help anyway. As i mentioned to Dave1, there are a lot of goodies on this site, so peruse around it a bit an see if you can get any help.

Thanks NiSk
I have looked at these before and they appear to be a copy of the haynes verisons.
Does anyone have access to an official Xantia service handbook?
Many thanks

On the petrol model:
F12 under-dash (10Amp) is heating - aircon - reverse lamps.
F12 underbonnet (10Amp) is LH main beam.
Does say it varies from model to model so might not apply to yours.
