I have an early VIN car and can confirm that mine has no fuse #18 either, it is a glass inline fuse under the driver's side dash.
Hello everyone,Here I come with another very technical question. This time it’s electrical. I hope someone can help me out a bit...In my process of putting my car back together I got to my inside electrical system and noticed something weird. I flipped the fuse box around to take a good look at the wires and noticed that there are no wires going to fuse 18. According to the fuse list this fuse is for stop lights (brake lights) and according to the schematic diagram this is the only circuit connected to this fuse. The interesting bit is that I don’t see any loose or jumped wires anywhere. I partially untangled the main wiring loom and I don’t see those wires anywhere! It’s as if there was a design change and now the power is going through a different fuse. I’ll look for the correct color wires to see if they are connected to some other fuse.The connectors are inside the fuse box and there’s even a fuse there. Oh, and the brake lights did work just fine.The question – does anyone know if there was a design change or some service bulletin that changed the brake light wiring? It does seem like the wires were never there. On the other hand this might be something done by the PO that will now have to be fixed.Thanks!
Greetings from Poland!
