Fuse Block Help

My dash lights, heater blower, and temp/fuel gauges are not getting power. Traced back to fuse box and that side of the box is not powered. Looking at the picture I have no power to Fan HTR, GN. LPS and BU/Seat. I do have haz lights though. Any ideas what would cause this? What to look for?

Make sure the fuse block is tight!! Check back side at firewall and make sure no breaks anywhere.
Maybe corrosion on that side of fuse block?? May have to take it apart and clean it? Good luck

those three fuses are powered by a bus bar. they are connected to a 10ga red with white stripe wire. this wire goes straight to the ignition switch. so i would imagine you need to first check the ignition switch if that's ok then trace the wire between the two

Similair to this though this is a slightly later layout. How about your wipers and turn signals?

I would have guessed it was actually a disconnect at the ignition switch if it was those circuits alone.

Thanks for the replies. I was able to start tracing back to ignition and found a plug on top of steering column that was unplugged. All works now. Thanks!
