ELECTRICAL PROBLEM?

2001 Infiniti I30 • 160,000 miles

2001 infiniti i30. No power going to radio harness. And the instrument cluster lights. Both fuses ok on the radio. Changed them out. But found that the one side strip on the 15 amp audio fuse side of the fuse box near the battery, there is power/voltage on 'both sides' of fuse. And is the same for all the fuses on that strip. Only voltage on one side of the other strip which should be correct. Any help would be appreciated. Dave

Made some progress. Disconnected harness from front speaker amp and now getting power for radio. Will get new speakers for the doors and rewire. But horn circuit is still hot on both sides. And still no instrument cluster lights.

Have you done the test for cluster light as per my reply to your other post?

Let us keep all correspondence over here so we don't get mixed up.

Are the taillights working?

You definitely have a short to power and it might be at the fusebox.
Disconnecting the speakers from amp could mean the speakers are shorting out their circuit due to bad wires or they are shorted to ground.

Sorry. Replied to other post. Both red/yellow and red/white have power/voltage. Taillights working. Still no illumination. Will check switch now. The one on the dash. And again thank you. Will donate in the future. Just rough right now

Perform the test as per previous post on the wires for the lighting system at radio. You can disconnect the radio connector and turn on lights to see if it works for the dash illumination.

Yeah. We got it. Everything works now #1 mini fuse at j/b was good but I cleaned it out with spray and reinserted the fuse. All works. Sorry for your time but really helped jump start my brain with your suggestions.I hope I never have to ask a question again. Yea right. Thank You. Dave
