Fuse Box Replacement

Postby gaillarry » Mon Oct 01, 2012 1:03 pm



Getting rid of broken fuse box on my 82 GL1100. Picked up this replacement at local autoparts shop. It's a 10 slot fuse box. Question is where does the live feed (12volts) go into?

It looks like each fuse has it's own set of connectors...You would have to jump between at least 4 of them on one side and then connect to the black wire.

Since the fuse box isnt' suitable I took it back to Carquest and got this one. Which I think will work better?

I can't tell from the picture for sure.Does the red wire contact all the fuses in the holders.?
By the schematic,there are 2 fuses that are separate from the switched black wire.
The parking lamp fuse could be seperate from the fuse block,along with the acc. fuse.

Yes the red wire connects all the fuses. I can install a single in-line fuse holder for acc.
