    Default 1988 GMC Suburban Seirra 1500

    I went about replacing the starter. They gave me the wrong one to start and looks like when I hooked
    that one up it blew out some fuses. I got the correct one now and place it in and then replaced
    three fuses up by the wiper motor on firewall. They were blown. I checked all fuses on panel inside and
    they are all ok.
    But I still have no power coming into the Cab. I have headlights and taillights, thats it.
    Turn the key and nothing. No radio, power windows, nothing.
    There must be some more fuses outside on the fire wall I don't see????
    Is there anymore fuses insided under the dash besides the fuse panel which I check all ok.

    It has me stumped??????????????
    Ive replaced the started before with no problems but I was giving the right starter from the start when
    I did the last one.

    Ive checked all wiring. It seems strange after I replaced the three fuses that something
    would work. One book I have they talk about inline fuse on some models. I don't seem to
    see any of those around the battery.
    The battery terminals are tight.
    Maybe I will check all the grounds from the battery. Im not sure if I checked all of them.
    I thought so but will check again.
    Strange all I have is headlights and taillight.

    A lot of times the two smaller wires off the starter that run to fuse box have fuses on them I bet thats it

    I wonder where they are if they are there. There not up where the rest were next to the
    firewall and wiper motor.

    If just one wire is out I would loose all power like this. Man if that isn't a crazy design

    Found the problem. Had the small wire on starter touching something and shorting.
    Its all working ok now.

    Thank for the help.
