Today I was working on another fork lift when co-worker Steve came over and asked me to help him diagnose a wiring issue on a Blizzard snow plow.
I welcomed the challenge and began telling him about my wiring nightmare yesterday. His wiring harness looked pretty good. Pliable wires with good insulation. He had the same issue where you could wiggle the harness and get different results. There was a inline two fuse holder and I pulled one of the fuses just to see. It was good. He pulled the other one and this is what he found:
It seems kinda weird that we found this same problem on two different pieces of equipment two days in a row, er no? At least I only lost half an hour looking for the problem. I think Steve got burned a bit worse.
There once was a broken down plow truck
The gremlins were winning and had us quite stuck
We were starting to lose
Till we found a bad fuse
Now I'll always look there first and maybe have good luck.
