Question about 1988 Chevrolet Suburban
I was replacing starter and found out they gave the wrong one after
I had it installed and bolt holding it would not tighten. Found out
it was the wrong one and exchanged it.
After I installed the right one I then had no power when I went to try it.
I check fuses outside by the wiper motor and three I found were blown so replaced them. I also check all fuses inside on fuse panel and all them are ok.
Ive replaced starters on this truck before with no problem but had the
right starter from the start.
There must be some more fuses outside somewhere that are blown
and I can't find them.
Any ideas. It has me stumped. Ive never had this problem before.
Im glad its not raining here in florida because the windows are
down and can't get them up since they are power.
Your vehicle may have fusable links that connect to the large terminal of the starter (the terminal that goes to the thick wire to the + of the battery) they may have been broken if stretched by tisting the terminal or if the starter hung from the wires ... or if they were shorted (they are burnt inside) check them with a test lamp (where the black rubber blob is before it connects to the harness not at the bolt side) about 8 inches away ... there is generally another (or a couple) fusable links located on the firewall (pro jobber parts shop will have these replacement fusable links) ... that connect to another fat wire from the battery ...
