my interior lights,brake lights,shift lock release,dash,clock,message centerand radio quit working. i replaced body control module and light control module. no power to the fuse block for these accessories. i can run a hot wire to the fuses and these accessories will come on.

    Well, not being an actual electrician or certified mechanic, I can only guess that since the power comes from the battery to the fuse panel, you must have a blown out/burnt out fusible link or break in the wire coming from the power source to the fuse box.
    If it were my car, I would look for those 2 problems first, & if I couldn't find them I would run a heavy guage FUSED wire from the battery direct to the back of that fuses dead leg and supply that fuse circuit direct. It should not cause any problems.
  • i can not get the radio in my 1997 continental to come on. fuses are ok. i replaced the front control unit but still no good. wiring appears good. is there a reset button on the amp somewhere?
