well an update... I cleaned off most of all inside cabin harness connections with just some lemon/salt combination, same stuff that cleans up pennys
, just wanted to eat up any residue corrosion off of anything i could see..
Installed the new fuse box and the only thing that happened different when i finally got the last harness connector on it, was the horn is going off constantly. I just pulled the horn fuse for now, but the red dash alarm light seems to stay illuminated and kind of flicker/flash/pulse.
I didnt get a transmitter/fob with the truck, only the key, which turns but only forward one click, like the ignition is still dead/unpowered.
Could it be a possibility that the XLT package needs the remote to "disarm" the system before i go any further?
when we got the truck, the foglights stayed on when i hooked power to the battery. some inside lamps would light up but thats it, now after the fuse box, its fully dead besides the horn?
Anyone know if the truck flooded, there IS a flood/water sensor either on the drivers seat rail or right up in front of the pass footwell fuse box, has a wire attached to a cup looking like device with a rubber sock kind of thing about 1" wide?
Before i start really tearing through more stuff, i'd hate to find out it was one sensor that renders the truck ignition "useless" until its replaced or repaired.
Even the mirrors don't function, yet the buttons on the door seem perfectly fine, nothing feels stuck or like they're corroded VS normal.
