  • Hello i have 2019 picanto and sometimes at hot weather the remote key does’nt work, and the air condition automaticly set on 22 celzius… do you now with fuse is fit to this circuit? Thanks

  • Hi I’ve got a 2012 Picanto and the horn is not working. I’ve checked the fuse and straight wired the horn to the battery and it works too. The only thing I haven’t checked is the relay. I’ve got the fuse box which is located behind and under the left headlight. I’ve found the fuse but in this box there are no relays as in your picture just fuses. any idea where the horn relay is? Please help i’m at my wits end.
    Thank Dave.
