For those Eplex experts out there...

I am currently baffled a bit with a situation regarding my eplex. I just lost the drivers side - keypads dead, shades, sofa lights. When I measure the Eplex+ I should see around ~5V+ or so and I am seeing nothing. I am seeing the voltage coming out of the clock so it is powering the bus but somewhere along the line there is a disconnect. If I move a module that wasn't working and direct connect to the back of the clock it comes back to life -so I know it is in the wiring and not the module.

Anyone come across this? It is like a fuse along the line is blown but I can't for the life of me find any inline fuse. My next step is to remove all the modules and add them one at a time to see if one is fried and throwing the EPLEX+ to ground?

Welcome any suggestions.

I've never seen an in-line fuse in the Eplex wiring. You either have a bad module or a loose connection. The only real solution is to check the wires at each module.

I didn't think there was a fuse inline.. so thanks for confirming my gut. I will continue to go down the line - so far - no power at each of these modules. I'll keep going...I've got to find the issue somewhere! Thanks for the response.

Didn't think so either... I am pulling modules one at a time to see if I get 5V on the Eplex bus. Driving me nuts!!
