Your second post is a little unclear as to what you did. Benzmac stated "replace all fuses" sounds like you only looked at all. If the advice is to change them all, then change them all. Quite often the fuse or fuses may look OK, but time and corrosion have taken a toll. And if it turns out not to be fuses, well then you have peace of mind knowing you have good fuses in the block.
