Default 406 nightmare immobilisers

For what its worth, for past two weeks I have been having real problems with an immobilised 406, a stubborn no start!

Tried all manner of solutions including checking fuses etc. Then I noticed that the manuals were all refering to the fuse box on the passenger side of the vehicle, which would translate to the driver's side in UK versions.

I had been looking at the owner's handbook fuse diagram and completely mis-read it. Co relating the handbook diagram with my actual fuse box I had been looking at it from an upside down perspective. Thus fuse position number one was really at the top right hand corner in a line of fuses with 12 fuse positions.

It had been puzzling me why there seemed to be 14 fuses on the bottom row when the handbook diagram indicated 12 fuses.

During my efforts to restore the vehicle I had removed the shunt and replaced it in the position which seemed to be indicated by the handbook diagram, and had inadvertently placed it in the parked position.

I have seen some 406s with the fuse board mounted upside down from the factory.....

Is it all sorted now?

Tomorrow, too dark when I spotted my error, I guess it was mounted upside down to accommodate the steering wheel wiring in Right hand drive UK models.

I honestly thought I was correcting fuse errors and even got deadlocked into the vehicle recently with no power to the electric windows, eventually rescued by my neighbour who jump leaded the car so I could put the window down and passed out the spare key.
