    I have a Series 1 Au Forte that when you turn the car off in economy it will only restart if it is in neutral. If economy is off then it starts in park no problem

We have a 99 Falcon Futura Au, we need a fuse diagram as it's not on the fuse case & we don't have a manual. We have a light on the dash that comes on when the car is started (fan in box

Probably will not get the fuse info here. I suggest you join up to the Australian Ford Forum. There will be someone there that can help you pinpoint the fuse you want and possibly scan the pages from the owner's manual for you with all the fuse diagrams and email the docs to you.
Here is the web site. Just register on the site and post you question in the correct area.
