I noticed there is no thread with information regading fuse listing and I think it could be useful to forum memebrs. In order to have full information on one place I added listings for TF 2003 onwards below.

I can not create nice tables by using only appropriate fonts, so I decided to use pictures as you can see below. I hope it will be useful to you.

The majority of the fuses are mounted in three fuse boxes:
- Under bonnet fuse box - attached to the LH inner front wing
- Passenger compartment fuse box - installed behind a fuse box closing panel on the driver’s side of the fascia;
- Satellite fuse box attached to the side of the passenger compartment fuse box.


In addition to the fuse boxes, in-line fuses are installed:
- Near the under bonnet fuse box, for the Electric Power Assisted Steering (EPAS) system.
- Behind the LH side trim of the luggage compartment, for the Electro Mechanical Constantly Variable Transmission (EM-CVT), where fitted.
- On the side of the passenger compartment fuse box, for the SRS system.
- Behined driver side of facia, fuse for alternator

Oooh. Just found this, nice work.

The 2003 onwards TF has the mini blade fusebox under the steering wheel, which looks like this.

Thanks for this. I finally get to know what the round thing in the middle of the fuse box is. The cigar relay!!! I have been worried about this one as I noticed it is hot when I plug in my OBD2 in the TF. Does it just pull out? Could be why I cannot get any power out of the cigar plug even after I replaced the fuse.

The fuse box layout and info is great but I seem to have a problem, whilst trying to get the heated rear window to work I have found that the red engine bay fan relay is plugged in to what should be the heated rear window and there is a yellow relay plugged in to the middle slot for the engine bay fan. Any advise on whether this could just be an flaw of manufacture or has someone been fiddling?
Would the HRW relay actually work the engine bay fan?
Or should I just presume that the relays are the wrong way round and replace them both as they are probably knackered?

Actualy both relays work in same way so they might be swapped.
What is the color of the bases of these relays? If base color correspond to relay color they might be in correct place. I think that relay's bases can be detached from each other and reattached in different order.
