    That is the reason everyone needs that book ,will tell exactly where & which fuse! More info in it about that vehicle than you can find anyehere that will help an owner. No other fuses that I know of. Think you can get the owners man. fairly cheap google it. I dont have access to any data sites here.

    All fuses looked good, I assume it is the 7.5 (Running Light) Fuse? I inspected the bulb sockets again, they are really rough looking. Going to pull a meter out and see if I have voltage. I also found a used OM on eBay, Its on its way.
