All the fuses on the interior box are good and all the fuses under the hood are good also
Dodge Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 1 year ago

Verify those fuses have voltage, if so check to see if 15 amp fuse in location 8 has voltage with hi beams on. Let me know, thanks.

I rechecked all of those fuses and tested them with a test light and no power... key switch is on with the headlights turned to the on position
Dodge Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 1 year ago

Fuse 15 and 16 d on't have power either?

No... so I'm thinking that theven internal fusee box isn't getting power but I'm not sure... I'm stumped that's why I came back here lol. Before I swapped the engine out everything worked properly
Dodge Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 1 year ago

This under hood fuse box has a large wire that connects to it which gets voltage directly from battery. It sounds like this wire has a poor connection somewhere. Check to see if large wire going to fuse box has voltage, if not follow it to battery and let me know. Thanks.

If your talking about the red wire/the positive yes it goes to the fuserver box under the hood and it has power to both of the terminals
Dodge Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 1 year ago

If you are sure power wire is good and connection is good that would mean interior fusebox is burnt out. Let me know how it goes, thanks.

When I touch the terminals on the top with the test light it shows power.. I took the nuts off that hold the wire down to make sure there wasn't aNY corrosion and it looked good n clean.. is it a possibility that when I tried to start the engine with a bad battery and jumpers on it and the battery didn't have enough juice and the gauges didn't work right cuz the battery was so low or dead that I had fried the internal fuse box?
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
The dome light inside the car works and when I pull the fuse out In the interior fuse box the light goes out. So I must have some type of power making it to the fuse box
Dodge Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 1 year ago

Check 40 amp fuse in location 3 under hood, this is where fuse 15 and 16 on interior fuse box get power. Let me know, thanks.

That 40 amp fuse was missing for some reason not sure why or how my lights worked before?but I guess my other question is why speedometer isn't working
Dodge Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 1 year ago

Good to hear one issue is taken care of. Is your check engine light on when driving? Automatic or manual transmission?

Manual 5 speed... it worked before the swap. I have the car on jack stands and we started it up and let it run then put it into 1st gear tires moved and everything but speed stayed at zero... don't know if this is because of the internal fuse box not getting power.
Check engine light code p0032 shows up
Dodge Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 1 year ago

Check wiring between vehicle speed sensor and PCM, I'd imagine there is a broken wire or poor connection. Here is a wire diagram to help with testing.

The plug connection is on the back topside of the transmission?... are u able to test the inside of the plug for power ?
Dodge Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 1 year ago

Ya, you should be able to verify it has good 5v and ground. It should be the only 3 wire connector on transmission. Located on rear of engine, on drivers side where transmission connects.
