Do you own a volt meter? We need to do some wire testing at the smart junction box.

What would it likely be >?
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 9 months ago.

Would you like my answer to also include the wire diagram so you can see how this circuit is powered since with your lack of tools I can not help you diagnose and fix this?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.

Smart junction box.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Can you explain briefly how to get to this wire to test it
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 9 months ago.

You access the fuse box inside the car first and use the diagram below.

pull out 9 and test it ?
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 9 months ago.

You would test at the back of this wire while the connector is still plugged up.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Can I unplug the back its but of a squeez to reach and test it and if it doesn't power what's my solution
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 9 months ago.

You can unbolt the SJB from the body to move it and gain better access.

If there is no power the SJB is bad.
