    Yesterday the lighting board fell off my trailer and got completely
    smashed. I noticed the bulb failure warning light come on, then go off.

    Now I find neither the parking lights nor the rear lights work at all. I
    checked the fuses, #23, #24, they are OK. Anyone any suggestions?

    First of all, see if power is getting to the fuses. If not, there are
    some big fuses under the "main fuses" cap under the hood, have a look at
    them. Also put the headlight switch in the "P" position, power arrives
    at the lights a different way. Also the headlight switch is a bit of a
    weak point, see if there's power at the white wire on its terminal 2.
    (This wire takes power to the fuses 23 & 24.)

    Replace tt with t (twice!) and remove parentheses to email me directly.
    (But I check the newsgroup more often than this email address.)

    Thanks, Mike.

    I feel a complete lemon. The fuse box diagram in the book
    suggested seems to be back to front, what I thought was #23, #24 were in
    fact 5 and 6.

    The genuine #23 had blown, also the one that does the brake
    light. Replaced them both, now all OK. Except that I need new glow
    plugs, but that's a different problem.
