Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

Do you happen to have a test light?

can you help here without calling ?
Expert:  Jay replied 9 months ago.

as a starting point since fuses were tampered with, looking at them is not always the best way to determine if they are good or not. Using a test light would show you if it's good and getting power. Like this video..

by change does it matter if the fuse is put in upside down ?
