Default 2008 keeps blowing a fuse

This thing is doing it intermittently. It keeps popping the 10amp fuse labeled as backup lights but when it goes out the engine light comes on with u0101 it wont come out of park unless I use the shifter release button and the heater controls go out. Has anyone else encountered this maybe?

This is on an SX4. But why is all this stuff tied together on the same circuit? Can anyone direct me to the correct wiring diagrams maybe?

You still having problems. Let us know which country your in and what engine you have and I'll see if I have the appropriate wiring diagram.




On a side note for anybody reading this, is the an easy way for people to determine if it has (Taiwan) wiring. An odd question I know, but the workshop manual often shows two wiring diagrams for a circuit one being referred to as "Taiwan". I know most if not all the ones in Canada have this "Taiwan" circuits.
I do know the body control modules differ a lot to look at but have no idea if these are easy to see.

I can't confirm this but it appears the LHD models have the "Taiwan" BCM and wiring. This is up under the dash.

I'm quite surprised about this assertion....I'll verify but all things I had to pay attention were conform to the Japanese models....I remember the headlights circuits in the 2007-2009 shop manual were different...Taiwan using relays....that might be a point of comparison....I'll dig in the manual to find where these relays should be...if 2011 has this difference also.
About Cmmcfad missing details...the picture suggest the car is a sedan...and the fuse diagram he shows is similar to the one I have for my 2011 (the 2007-2009 graphic is different in the shop manual...but it might just be a different artistic rendition...).

Could be a good way of easily identifying which wiring it has.
Appears two of the head light relays are in a box in front of the main relay/fuse box.
IE: if you have this extra box you have "Taiwan" wiring.

Can't find a photo of a RHD having this box and therefore "Taiwan" wiring but I can't confirm this, likewise I can't confirm all LHD do.

As long as we and importantly the owner can determine what the vehicle has will help us assist with wiring issues.

Nope, you can't trust that either. The diesel model has a couple of relays in there nothing to do with the headlights.
Back to just the BCM at the moment


I guess if you have the petrol engine you could remove the cover on that little relay box and see what they are marked as.

Yes..in Canada and the USA we all have only the 2.0 petrol engine. ANyway, we are 5 hours late here relative to UK... I'm just finishing breakfast and will go take a look under the hood. Happily I have the car in a heated garage as it is -22C outside this morning...

OK..verified..yes, relays are there...I like relays but they are not identified. THey are for the headlights, obviously. I suppose the serial number has a code for the type....
I do not have electric power steering, no HID, no fog lights ...though they have left the fog light fuse....

I couldn't find a photo searching for a fusebox like yours with both the covers off so your pic is perfect
The diesel relays are now easily identifiable as different to the headlight relays.

Here's a pic for comparison. Basically if you have two relays like the right photo you have "Taiwan" wiring. I think the other two headlight relays may be in front of the battery but it doesn't matter really.

Thanks for your help.
