Default Please Help Me Im going nuts here

Ok was rewiring my audio system and had a portable work light hooked up to the cigarette lighter on the light.

Somehow it shorted.. And it arced

Now my radio wont turn on, my power mirrors dont work..

I have looked at every fuse on both sides.. Nothing is blown..



I am clueless and after 2 hours of checking fuses with a circuit tester im ready to go insane.


Hope someone can answer this

There are fuses under the hood. Right on the firewall.

did you find the problem?

And as a suggestion, ALWAYS run your radio'* +12v CONSTANT on a line to the battery (12ga wire should work), along with a ground to a CLEAN piece of metal.

Ground is important, as it prevents hum....and why seperate battery? would you run a 4ch amp off of your cigarette lighter? NOPE! why run your deck? this is espically important (and stated) in things like alpine high powered decks (60x4) and even some pioneers (pioneer used to provide a secondary batt wire just for this, dont know if they still do)

the 12v switched is not that important, as it is just a relay internally, and all pwoer should come from the +12v constant

Default 87 Fuse Box schematic

Does any one have schematic for the fuse box in a 87 model?

Also, are there fuses under the hood?

Drove home, parked car. Went back out about 20 minutes later and it spins but will not start. Fuel pump working fine. New coil pack and plug wires.

STUMPED and need to know what fuses do what.

Would appreciate any info.
