Urgent: Workaround for a Bad Fusebox
Posted 06 October 2015 - 10:31 AM
The probem(as we know it):
There are fractures in the joint where the pins are soldered to circuit board in the back of the fuse box behind fuse 24, which powers the engine management computer. The computers will intermittently lose power, causing me to roll to a stop along the side of the road.
The question is:
Is there a way to "jump" the engine management computer to get the vehicle to start by bypassing the fusebox completely. If so, where would I do this, and how would I do it without risking damage to the computers? Could I create a fused wire between the battery and fuse 24, bypassing the damaged solder point, and powering the computers as a viable "side of the road" fix?

Hopefully one of those amazing subject matter experts will pipe up. Until then, you get the peanut gallery (me!)

Or bridge the output from 24 and 25, then put a slightly larger fuse in number 25 only (20A). Not pretty, but it would be fine 99% of the time.
