We have no pics of that but if dealer is going ot fix it they will replace it more than likely even if it the whole fuse box that needs to be replaced.

Well if it has to be replaced how would you do it disconnect battery and take old box off and replace new one back like it was and reconnect battery and would it have to be reprogrammed are should it all work fine

It should i'm sure the back of it is plug in but make sure you get the correct fuse box as they are different for different applications. And of course make sure to disconnect battery prior to removing it. If the first one burnt up why? So you better put somekind of protection prior to hooking battery up so you don't smoke another one.

For sure on getting the correct part my main concern is knowing for sure if it has to be reprogrammed are if it could be just removed and take one fuse at a time and put everything back like it was and hook battery up and everything be working like before. By looking at it I can tell it's a simple thing to replace but if it's has to be reprogrammed then I definitely can't are have the software for all that

That connector I removed to look and see if I could see anything wrong didnt see anythI ng wrong with it but for some reason it has to be held in to work with pressure so I assume something is wrong with the box bad terminal are something cause I'd have to push it in and hold it in for it to work

Sometimes connectors just lose there clamping you can try tweeking prong for a better connection or using dielectric grease on the connector to help with conductivity. It won't hur anything. That may be better than installing a new box.

Yeah I tried that already and it didn't get any better I pushed the prongs left and right here and there and even tried to close up the terminals on the wire in the plug as well I looked for like corrosion dirt etc. Didn't see anything and still same results. Maybe I should change the whole plug out and cut the wires where the terminals are in the plug and strip the wires back one at a time so there's no confusion where there go and connect new ones idk but it's been sitting at the house with the battery disconnected and that plug still out for two days now hope it hasn't reset something.
