Fuses ....

If there is a weak link in these cars (sorry about the pun) it is the fuses. Aluminum fuses in copper holders means corrosion at some point- Sometimes creating weird and hard to trace electrical problems. So ...

-At least once a year I will try and rotate each fuse in the fuse box to make sure they have a good contact and haven't already started to corrode.

-When feeling particularly ambitious, I will remove each fuse and each contact end with a rag that has WD40 on it.

-Using the harder to find copper link fuses are the ideal way to go.

Keep us posted,

Haasman
