    Radio Power

    I was looking for a busted Clamp 15 fuse when I came across something, the previous owner had used two cables to power the radio through fuses! Sound Confusing? I know, confused the hell out of me also so I included a picture. This can't be right, why would someone do this? My radio works fine actually, it just doesnt come on when you turn the key to position I (probably because the power isnt done right). I may pull the radio out in a few days to see if this can be done right because the way it is now can't be too safe.

    The radio should be on fuse 14, which is the blue 15 amp in the middle of the middle row. That fuse also controllers the cigarette lighter and a number of other items.

    If you are having the radio issue where it won't power on in position 2 and only key position 1 upon shutdown, check fuse #10 for the aux water pump. This was our issue and not the K134 MF relay.
