Question
QUESTION: Have a 200 Chevy Express with an explorer conversion. I have lost all power to the conversion fuss panel. Is there some kind of master fuse or fusable link that I need to check.?

ANSWER: HI MICHAEL, WELL THERE MAYBE A FEW FUSES OR LNKS TO CK ON THIS..OPEN THE HOOD AND CK FOR ANY FUSEABLE LINKS GOING TO THE FUSE BOX UNDER HOOD. ALSO CK DOWN BY THE STARTER SEE IF THEY HOOKED UP ANY LINKS BY THE MAIN TERMINAL ON THE STARTER POST,[BIG RED WIRE POST] THIS IS COMMON..ALSO CK BY THE POSITVE SIDE OF THE BATTERY TERMINAL FOR ANY IN LINE FUSES...MAKE SURE YOU ALSO CK ALL THE FUSES IN THE VAN UNDER THE LEFT OF STEERING COLUMN...THIS IS A HARD QUESTION BECAUSE ALL CONVERSION COMPANY'S HAVE THERE OWN WAY OF DOING THINGS....IF NOTHING IS FOUND I WHAT I SAID ABOVE YOU WILL NEED TO TRACE THE POWER SUPPLY WIRE TO THE CONVERSION PANEL AND GO FROM THERE.
