Well I checked all the fusible links and relays - except for the horn, didn't want to come off easily so I didn't force it, and all the fuses by the drivers side - replaced one 10 amp for the dash ac controls. And still no running lights or dash but I do have power to the windows, drivers seat and mirrors. Car starts fine and runs even with loose battery cables so I'm thinking the alternator is ok - any way to test is without removal?
Behind and to the rear of the fusible link box there is a small recess with what look like two other fuse-relay type objects - I did not mess with them - yet, could they be the problem? One is lime green the other black ( 85 300Zx non turbo ) what wires I could see in the area looked fine - no scorching evident
gonna check chiltons again. Any other ideas on where to check fuses, relays etc?
