I had a heater / blower issue many years ago. It was on a previous 4.8 (one of the first 4.8 models with led display inside). I can not remember anymore if it was the blower or heater? Any way, for what it is use, it was a "heat fuse" that I replaced myself. It is located behind the dash board at the bottom centre, a little electronic board. I replaced the little fuse at the cost of only a soldering iron and fuse (R20) from an electronic shop (was on holiday). Soldered the old one out and took it to the shop for a sample. It was fixed afterwards and worked very well.

Hi Chris,

Sorry I do not have any diagram but can remember it was easy to find. Could be one of the black boxes if I remember correctly. Open them and look inside, you will spot the popped heat fuse.
