Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you out. This has to be a blown IOD or M1 fuse. Doublecheck the fuses using a 12 volt test light. The fuses have these little test points on top of them. Ground the clip of the test light and probe the 2 test points on each fuse. If you find a fuse where one of the test points powers the light but the other test point does not, then that tuse is blown. Recheck this and then get back to me.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
I checked the fuses I have a high tech 6/12/24 volt tester. I found 4 with only one side reading and several with continuity .I did not get dome light to come or Radio. I checked fuses under the hood and driver side panel .

Please advise what to do next
Expert:  Chris replied 9 months ago.

Tell me which 4 fuses had only one side reading voltage. Those items under the plenum are capaciters and are only used to reduce radio interference. Those are not related to your problem. I will look for your reply in the morning.

Expert:  Chris replied 9 months ago.

Replace those 4 fuses that had only one side reading and then get back to me if that fixes it.
