RE: [DML] Fuse 8 & 2 have no power?



Duke, Power to #2 comes from #8 and power to # 8 comes from the headlight
switch when depressed. The switch gets it's power from the source via the
brown / purple wire. Check the power going into the back of the switch
before depressed and then when depressed check the other terminal for power.
I fix these all the time and normally it's dirty or the plastic center shaft
isn't centered properly and the transfer won't happen.

Subject: [DML] Fuse 8 & 2 have no power?

As my wiring woes continue, I went to turn on my lights the other day (this 
is before I started working on repairing the relay compartment) and my dash 
didn't light up.  I also didn't have any side, rear lights either.  Only 
headlights.

I then checked the fuses in the relay compartment with a test light and 
found that fuse 8 & 2 had no power at all.  I then took the cover off to 
gain access to the headlight switch in the dash and I swapped out the 
headlight switch thinking that might be the problem but that didn't work.

I then put the cover back on and tried it again and it was working?  I 
didn't touch anything but I decided to try wiggling the wires behind the 
dash at the headlight switch (thinking it might be a loose connection) but 
it never went out.

The next day I tried it again and it didn't work yet again.  Checked the 
fuses and no power to 8 & 2.  Any ideas?

I've finished up the relay compartment rewiring (but it didn't involve the 
fuse box; just relays) and the lights are working fine now, but I'm just 
worried if I'm out one night and they stop.  I'd like to figure out what is 
causing the prob.

Thanks,

Duke
