Problem: No electrical power was available
in the vehicle. The battery was fully charged.
Details: The technician found that the
80-amp FL-1 fuse was blown. He installed a new fuse, which blew
immediately, even with the key in the Off position.
Based on the wiring diagram, the Tech-Assist consultant suggested
unplugging the alternator because it was one of the main
components connected to the GL-1 fuse circuit. Other circuits had
their own smaller fuses, which should have failed if there was a
problem in their circuits (see diagram).
Confirmed Repair: The technician unplugged
the alternator and the fuse was okay. The alternator was replaced
and the vehicle was fixed.
