1998 Damon Challenger w/Ford460 F53 Electrical Nightmare
After installing some additional brake and running lights to my 1998 the fuse on the brake and tail light circuit didn't pop, it melted! After fixing that problem I also began the work to add a trailer brake controller as well as try to find why I'm not getting power to my hydraulic jacks, slide out motor and generator. I removed the dash panel to better access to all the wiring harnesses as well as the brake controller connecter. Just to be sure all was good up to this point I verified power to everything that did work including the brake and tail lights. I even started the motor. Needing to disconnect the camera system I installed I lost track of the positive lead and thought I heard a fuse pop. Now it won't start. It tries but it seems I'm getting no spark. I checked all the fuses inside and out. I found the 20amp starter coil circuit (picture) showing no voltage, but the fuse is still good.
I have no documentation on the fuse blocks added for coach power under the hood. In the picture the circuits controlling the wiring harness on the left show voltage, the circuits on the right show none accept the 15amp to the far right. My hopes are those circuits are charged when the solenoid closes after the motor is started. Or is the only circuit affected by that is the one that sends power from the alternator to charge the coach battery? Any help will be greatly appreciated!
