Talbot Express wiring diagram

Hi all. Can anyone point me in the right direction for a wiring diagram for an Express? The only part i need to see is the fuse box set up. A previous owner has been in there and made a right mess with a few wires being twisted to the fuse box and a few have had the ends cut off and had different coloured ends added.
Everything has been put back to normal but there are a few connections that im not 100% sure of.
Thanks.

SOunds and interesting vehicle. I've never heard of the Sexpress model before but it must have been popular. Passion Wagon by Talbot.

Hi wakaday

Not sure which fusebox you mean...the vehicle or the habitation?

For the vehicle you may find getting a Peter Russek manual a help...

Russek manual link <<

I say "may" because the diagrams in mine for my Peugeot are a bit confusing. better than nothing though.

When confronted by a problem, you can solve it easily by reducing it to the question, "How would the Lone Ranger have handled this?"

Thanks to all.
The russek manual isn't the easiest to understand.
The main thing i need to know is what colour wire fits where on the fuse box on the dashboard.
There are about 3 which are causing problems.

Fuses

Hi Wakaday
I've just been having electrical problems with my Talbot Express and it turned out to be the ignition switch, but I've been delving in the fuses as well trying to locate the problem. On mine there are also fuses under the bonnet which my mechanic says are for the caravan bit. If it helps I'll try to copy down the colours if I can see them and stick them on here. I've also got the Russek manual but its not as good as Haines for other vehicles I've owned. I've also started buying secondhand bits as new ones are bloody pricey.
Kindest regards Patman

Thanks Patman.
I have narrowed it down now to one fault. My headlight flasher doesnt work. Well, it does but not as it should.
It switches between main and dip and will flash if I pull it it forward but only when the lights are on. It doesnt do anything if the lights are off.
I,m left with one brown wire disconnected from the fuse box and its annoying. Tried it in different places but it either stops the flasher all together or leaves the lights on.
Strange one this as everything else is working fine including the dim dip set up.

Hi Wakaday
When you switch the ignition on does the heaterplug light come on ( assuming its a diesel)?

Where abouts is the brown wire? If you let me know I'll check mine to see if I can locate it. How old is your van and what type is it?
