This odd looking feature is the additional LARGE fuses mounted on the battery terminals
( the one replaced with household fusewire is 50A and supplies the GlowPlug circuit)

Re: Basic battery set.up

High spec cars have an additional 3rd fuseboard in the Boot area

Mounted below the Left Rear Lamp unit

It carries power for 'options'

Like Heated seats.. SubWoofer..power roof

Look for the notch in the carpet

Re: Basic battery set.up

Worth noting that my 1.6 diesel Evo doesn’t have any of those fuses on the battery terminal ??

Sensors slide onto a 'spike' on the battery terminal to monitor battery condition for 'Stop: Start'
