Customer Question

Hi Pearl. I have a 1996 Chev Tahoe 5.7 l that is having problems with fuses.
JA: Have you checked the fuse number? Does the fuse have the correct amperage for the circuit it's in?
Customer: It all started when I had no power to the cig lighter or power outlets. Inside fuse box has #8 and #14 don't appear to be getting power but they haven't blown either. Iv'e been trying to figure this out for a month now. Hope you can help.
JA: What is the model of your '96 Chevy?
Customer: LT I think
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I have used a test light to try fuses and wire. I thought I read in a blog that there was something special about these 2 fuses
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: I can't think of anything.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Chevy Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.

I will research it and send you what i have on it

then you can check on your own when your are with the vehicle

All I have is a test light.
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 1 year ago.

well we cant find out what id the check engine light is for ,so it is related to the power loss on fuses that will make it difficult

we can try to see about the no power to fuses since no scaner or voltmeter , but we will be limited with just a test light

will let you know
