Bump. This sounds familiar. I don't have the answer, but I'm sure someone does.

Good luck,
Glenn

Which fuse number please Dennis, and are you looking in the underbonnet or passenger footwell fusebox?

not quite sure what number it is but in the fuse box in the engine compartment its the 15 amp fuse 2nd down on the right hand side which keeps blowing (RH drive) according my handbook its fuse No 4 but it its written as "Automatic transmission, air conditioning, cooling fan, cruise control (diesel models). also when the fuse blows, the indicator lights by the selector lever and the indicator on the on the instrument panel do not work.

Default F4, engine compartment fusebox

Yes, F4 feeds the automatic transmission selector switch as well as:
  • Radiator fan control box electronics
  • Air conditioning compressor clutch relay coil
  • Reversing light switch
  • A header feeding other circuits

The fuse is blowing because there's a short circuit somewhere. A prime suspect is the feed to the radiator fan control box where it passes either under the fusebox or close to the inner nearside wing where the wire can be severed by a sharp edge. This fault only seems to affect diesels so I suggest that you look there first. It's initially a yellow wire with blue tracer.

Well it obviously isn't because your fuse is blowing. I'm afraid that you'll have to remove things to trace the route of the wire I mentioned from the fusebox to the connectors behind the fan control box.
