My name is ***** ***** I will assist you with your question today.

I'm an independent contractor and I don't get paid until a rating has been made. No rate, site gets it all.

We can go back and forth as needed to help resolve the issue you are having. Follow ups are free after ratings, so rate in confidence!

Which carrier unit do you have? Did you check the fuse on the back of the main display unit to see if the fuse has blown? The fuses are in that side panel behind the display unit.

Verify that the fuse didn't blow. If it is good, there is a micro processor failure and that will need to be serviced at a Carrier shop.

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

You want a 5 star service and I want to provide a 5 star service. Please consider that I don't know your skill level as well as I can't see,

touch, smell, hear the vehicle/machine in question. Please provide as much detail as possible and I will provide as much back.

Once an answer is provided, you should see a rating screen. Please rate my personal service to you. The ratings are my personal feedback,

they are not the site feedback.

Thank you for allowing me to assist you through Just Answer!

carrier ultima series x. Is the fuse behind the display? Do I have to open it to where all the fuses are?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
What color fuse could it be and does it have a name or number on it?
Technician: Jeremy, Certified Truck/Bus Technician replied 2 years ago

Yes, you will have to open the side and the fuses are behind it.

You only have 5 fuses. The rest are relays. Check all 5. If any one is blown, it will not let the board power up. You should be able to see if they are blown by looking at them.

CLICK HERE and follow the top diagram for your unit.
