The 2nd generation Skoda Octavia is based on the A5 platform. It was produced in 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 with station wagons and liftbacks, both with gasoline and diesel engines. In this material, we will provide a designation of the Skoda Octavia a5 (MK2) fuse boxes and relays, their locations, photographs and diagrams. Separately, we will highlight the fuses responsible for the cigarette lighter and washer
The number of elements in the boxes and their purpose may differ from the one presented and depends on the year of manufacture, the level of the vehicle equipment and the country of delivery.
It is located at the end of the dashboard behind the protective cover. On the back of which the current designation of the fuses should be found in the form of a brochure.

I liked this. It was more informative than usual insights into the fusebox. On RHD the fuse box on end of dash panel appears to be a mirror image of LHD so one must be careful to count the fuse numbering the right way. It might be worth mentioning that and perhaps covering it briefly so as to make it clear. The fuse numbering is right to left rather than left to right. For example, in the image fuse 1 actually becomes fuse 6. This is one that catches people out quite a lot
Thanks for your addition.
Skoda Octavia 2009 diesel….no ignition or instrument cluster lights, car starts then dies straight away, lights, radio are working, I hope it’s a fuse or relay but which one should I be looking at.
Have looked at manual and inspected fuse in engine compartment, seems ok and not sure which one inside the car.
I have no power to ignition switch, no lights to instrument cluster and car won’t turn over which fuses, relay should I be checking for this please
Check the engine fuse box. Is the battery ok?
Did you get sorted I am having the same issue
Hi guys could you help with the location of glow plug relay 2010 1.6
I’m having problems with 2006 skoda Octavia it will drive for about 3 miles them cuts out it won’t start for a few hours but struggles to start when it does any help.
Skoda octavia 2005 1.9 tdi. Brake lights are on all the time when ignition is on. I have replaced switch, I have power in the wire feeding the switch when the fuse is out of the fuse box.
I have a problem with the seat warming. The driver seat si not warming up at all, the passenger seat is warming up pretty slowly. What might be the problem? I heard that it may be a relay, but which one? And where to find it?
I have a problem with the battery charging. Have a new alternator fully charged battery, car starts runs but the battery is not charging after about 30 seconds. Is this a short or relay problem?. If relay which one?.
On intermittent wipe my wipers start going erratic, : they go like the clappers like the fastest rate for heavy rain. A mechanic said just live with it. I dont see a relay for the front wipers.
hello I have a problem that has been bothering me for a month. when you want, both fans turn on at full speed and the engine revs up to 1050 rpm. it doesn’t matter if the engine is cold or warm.
Based on the information you’ve provided, it sounds like there may be an issue with the cooling system of your vehicle. When both fans turn on at full speed and the engine revs up to 1050 rpm, it’s likely that the engine is trying to cool down quickly.
One possibility is that there is a problem with the engine’s temperature sensor or the thermostat. These components help regulate the temperature of the engine and if they are not functioning properly, it can cause the fans to turn on at full speed and the engine to rev up.
Another possibility is that there is a problem with the fans themselves. If they are not working properly, they may not be able to cool the engine effectively and could cause it to overheat, which would cause the fans to turn on at full speed.
