can anyone tell me how to use memory fuse when storing venga 4 petrol auto(6) 2017 please? i read in the instruction book that when leaving the car standing for a few months, this fuse can be pulled up and it disconnects something that stops the draining of the battery. however, when i did this i could no longer lock the doors. i would appreciate some assistance with this query. thank you.

Yes the fuse switch is located in the centre of the fuse panel in the lower dashboard immediately above the driver's right knee. Pull the panel off from the bottom, checking that the four retaining spring clips are present on the legs or in the corresponding holes. The fuse switch is the raised block in the centre, Pull it out about 3mm where it clicks into the Off position. This disconnects power from the radio memory and the trip computer/clock/consumption memory. It may also loose the user input satnav data ie destinations, routes etc.

However if you intend to leave for several months I would disconnect the battery earth cable. Though the battery voltage will still decline to some extent. After reconnecting the battery earth the system will take some time to sort itself out and decide what charge level the battery has.

Ok. What does it mean that "the system will take some time to sort itself out"? Do I have to do something? Do I just wait? How long?
So, if the vehicle were to be left for 3 months, would it be a good idea to totally disconnect the battery and then charge up the battery before reconnecting? Would there, then, be electronic problems?

went out to my car(1998 Ford Escort ZX2) to run some errands and put fuel in it. Only to find out that someone had gotten into the car and stolen my radio, amplifier and subwoofers(I knew I should've bolted those to my trunk floor.) Now sure I was upset but that wasn't the worst part; instead of just unplugging everything and taking the radio, they cut all the wires and vacuum lines which meant no heater/AC control. After a lot of stress and about $70 later, I had purchased a used chunk of wires from a junkyard Escort and started splicing wires back and whatnot. The heating and AC worked 192.168.100.1 192.168.1.1 perfectly but my car was throwing a CEL. I got it scanned and it was a P1633 I believe it was "keep alive memory circuit low" or something like that.
