1983 aspencade fusing

Post by 1983RAC » Sun Sep 04, 2011 10:24 am

Would someone know if there are fuses for the factory radio and clock. . .I don't see anything like that in the main fuse box under the false tank. . .trouble with battery discharge after 3 inactive days and want to see if those are the culprit?

Wiring diagrams I have don't show a radio.

There are up to 9 (depending upon which radio accessories you have) fuses in the rat's nest behind the left signal - which has to be removed. Some are in clamshell holders and some in in-line holders. Note that sometimes fuses may test good but not work when installed. This is because the fuse endcaps may be loose.

The clock and radio preset memories have a slow drain on the battery. My experience is that it takes about a week before the battery is too week to start. I'm always hooked up to an 'intelligent' battery tender whenever I'm parked for more than three or four days.

Don't know where offhand but there are wiring diagrams for the radio on the website.
