I recently got the truck. No dome light, no radio, no light under hood. Also, heater/A/C blower fan does not work. (Not sure if the blower is related to the other) Checked all the fuses indicated by the owner's manual and all related fuses in cab were good.
I checked the bulb in the dome light and it was burned out. I replaced it and no light.
Did some looking online and found that there was a 5 AMP fuse in the power dist box behind the battery that covered at least the dome light and underhood light. It was bad. I replaced it and both the dome light and underhood light came on for a FEW SECONDS (2 or 3?) And went back out so I assume there is a short somewhere.
I purchased a Haynes manual and the fuse locations and descriptions do not match my truck and what they present as a "typical" schematic does not match either.
The Haynes manual I have is for Dodge Dakota pickups, 1987 thru 1996. 2WD and 4WD
Bottomline, I would like a wiring schematic and/or accurate description of all the accessories on that 5 AMP fuse.
Also, what is the best approach to track down the offending circuit?
have the same problem?
