    Looks like someone replaced two of the fuses in the fuse holder with inline fuses. Pull the fuse holder out and all the wiring that goes to it. Might find another loose connection.

    X2, somebody replaced two fuses on the plate with standalone ones, look around the fuse plate and you will find that other wire break point.

    I'd ask what you are doing soldering a wire that you don't even know what it goes to but I've had enough argument for one day.

    No I know where the wire goes to where I soldered it as it was the connection that was broken , it's the other side of that wire that came out

    Well, looks like out of the 4 fuses one is a 20 and the others are 10. Meaning it may be that one as you have a bigger wire there like a battery main supply which will likely be red. If the wire is one of the smaller ones some things will work but not others but if it IS that big battery supply wire NOTHING will work at all until it gets hooked back up.

    You do realize of course that if you quote the other wire colors going to all the fuse ends you can only have one left loose or missing and that HAS to be the ONE right? You're making me chase down a bunch of circuits when you could easily weed it out to just one by telling the other wire colors.

    You do realize I’m Not “Making” you do anything , just trying to get advice . No need to get your panties in a knot about a wire I’m asking about , if you find it’s too much trouble don’t reply

    Have it you're own way. You obviously do not understand you just graduated to being a bottleneck to your own solution. Tried to avoid saying it but you pressed for it.

    I won't get in the way of somebody who insists on doing things the longer harder way and also now insisting others involved must play that way or not play at all. Where I come from we work smarter not harder. Just tried to show you how to do some of that but 100% rejected. No, OP prefers to stay uninformed. I myself will not stick around for that as I am all about going the OTHER way.

    No wonder things are so messed up on this planet. And why more and more we find ourselves trying to repair the owners before we can ever repair the equipment owned. Poster just announced he does not care about the time wasted of somebody HELPING HIM.


    There's your advice.
