Hello, please stand by for a moment.

Expert:  Ted Ritter replied 2 years ago.

Check the positive battery post, there should be a black box attached with some heavy wires coming out of it, let me know if this box is there, it has some fuse links inside, one or more may be burned out, the boc can be opened to check if any of the segments are burned out, if the box is not there or nothing is burned out it would be helpful if you have a voltmeter or 12 volt test light so we can do some more tests.
