Are all fuses good?
If so, do any major fuses or maxi fuses have FULL battery voltage on them?
What is the battery voltage at?
Are you sure the battery is not bad or low on a charge?
Maybe there is a faulty connection at the battery.
So fuse number 5 (the stop lamp fuse) only has 1.5 volts?
What about fuse number 1 through 4? What is the voltage on those fuses?
Just about ALL fuses under the hood should have power on them at all times regardless of the ignition switch position. Double check to ensure that you have FULL battery voltage going into the power distribution center on the red wire coming from the battery. If so, and the connection going into the power distribution center is good, the power distribution center is faulty and will need to be replaced.
Here is a wiring diagram of this circuit.
Black lead goes battery ground and red lead goes to the red wire going to the PDC
Looks good to me!
This would indicate a faulty PDC.
YES, based on the information you have provided me with, the PDC is faulty and will need to be replaced.
I am glad I can help!
