Hi All,

Only a quick question;

What difference is there between the GEMS and BOSCH fuse boxes?
or
Can I fit either box in my GEMS 1995 HSE, or does it need to be of the same year/engine ECU type?

Ok that was three questions, only really need to answer one of them.

Thanks.

Tyrone

There is a difference, the red lead, positive cable mounting is different. I have a couple of the early ones for sale, well one any way I need to send shupac one. But i'll trade you the later one if you have it, for the early one..

i know there is a different pn for the bosch vs. gems trucks. actully there are 2 different pn for the gems trucks and only one pn for the bosch. BUT, if the price is right i am willing to take a chance that the 97 fuse box will work with the bosch truck. as far as i can tell the difference is in the positive lead that goes from the batt to the fuse box. the lead is different in the way that it attaches to the pos post on the batt.

here is how the early gems attaches, it houses the "clamp" portion of the cable http://www.bputah.com/RR4%20Parts/Range ... MR6405.htm

here is how the bosch cable attaches, it bolts on to the clamp.

AB shows the same pn of fuse box for all the gems trucks. they show it works from 95-99 http://www.roverparts.com/Parts/AMR6405G.cfm

but they also show the one that is applicable to 98-99 http://www.roverparts.com/Parts/AMR6476G.cfm?bc=ab



mine burns through the RL7 relay in a couple of days and shows signs of over heating, i figure its burned up inside like the ones on the rrnet main page. i would expect a used one to exhibit the same burning. i will probably have to open up one or the other and repair it and use the other as a temporary until i can complete the repair.

when i do put a new relay in there, the LH blower runs full tilt all the time, it either has a bad transistor pair, or a stuck high speed relay on the blower itself. i think this constant load is what burned up the fuse box in the first place.

although, it is a range rover so maybe the new gear oil i put in the diffs today will fix all my electrical problems by the commute tommorow morning.
from a pm between scotty and I about a used fuse box i recieved today. thanks scotty. hopefully there is some good useful info in these links for you tyrone.
