Hi, I’m Cary and I’ll be helping you today.
Please understand that I can't smell, hear, or touch the vehicle, so patience is appreciated. Before leaving the site make sure and leave me a rating. You can still reply to me as many times as needed, even after the rating..

Did you use a test light when checking the fuses or did you just do a visual to see if they were blown?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
i visually checked them
Expert:  Cary York replied 11 months ago.

My concern is that even though they are good, we do not know if you have power source to the fuses to feed the fuse and circuit. With a test light you can verify the presence of voltage. Do you have a test light?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
doing that now
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
there is no power to the fuses. what now?
Expert:  Cary York replied 11 months ago.

If you have a test light check every fuse I the underhood fuse panel.

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
the two fuses inside the car both light up, but the one under the hood, the radio backup 7.5 does not light up on the tester

I will have to opt out. Do not have a wiring diagram for that one. Another expert will be with you shortly.
