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.

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
Dodge Mechanic: Chris, Shop Foreman replied 1 year 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.
