Ok, if it was fine prior to messing with the fuse panel then it has to be either a poor connection or bent pin in one of the fuse box connectors. Or the fuse box itself. its all related to this box. Make sure every connector is fully seated and the pins arent bent inside or damaged.14 September 2017 08:41
ok i will take it ou and check to see if any pins are bent and try it agen

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
