Fuse #12 according to my chart goes to the data link connector. My chart is for US cars so it may not be applicable to yours. I’ve noticed that the data link connector is tied to the cigarette/power outlet in the center console in some vehicles. Check and see if there is a dime or perhaps a krugerrand stuck down in the outlet.

I wish that their was a kruger coin their lol. Fuse 12 goes to DLC port 16 red with white wire. if i measure that wire its got a dead short, not sure if that wire goes through a relay.
