Hi all has anyone with a TX4 2009 come across this electrical problem
No main beam
No intercom
No internal lights
also no sound from indicators or open back door
I have checked the fuse all ok
I have checked all wiring into all 4 doors for a broken wire also hade fuse board out taken plugs off and put back
This started about 6 months ago but all corrected itself next day and was fine till 2 weeks ago all went off but after driving for an hour came back on over a bumpy road following week went off and has never come back on any help appreciated thank you in advance

Follow them from your battery, disconnect clean them and put back together, I don't know but I think one goes through to the main brain box inside the cab, on the TX 2 there are two big main fuses just by the battery don't know if the 4 Is the same, but it sounds like you have a lead making a bad connection

After speaking to a friend who has had the same problem he advised to look for the fuse that is labelled instrument cluster and check your fuses with a test light
