Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** you already replaced the fuse and that did not solve the problem?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
cant find where fuse is
Expert:  Marty replied 3 months ago.

The fuse is in the top of the overvoltage protection relay. The relay is located behind the battery. Check the fuse or fuses in the top of the relay and see if they are bad.

Click on the attachment below. K1 in the picture is the overvoltage protection relay.

Expert:  Marty replied 3 months ago.

Let me know if you locate the relay. If the fuses in the relay are good the relay itself may be bad.
