I broke something


I'm rebuilding my 1984 CJ7 and pulled the dash to replace everything...all gauges, lights, switches and controls.
Put it back together and I'm having a couple problems:
1. I keep blowing my BU/seatbelt 25 amp fuse
2. It starts, and sounds like the trans is engaging, but it won't move (in any gear)
3. Having a flasher problem (replaced the flasher module but no help)
Hoping someone can help with some of this.
Thx-Scott

Sounds like you moved the transfer case into neutral. Try moving it back into gear.

my '84 doesn't have a BU/Seatbelt fuse, much less a lead for it? and its a Laredo? did you pinch a wire putting it all back together? or ground one that shouldn't be grounded?

These are all very good possibilities. Nothing else to suggest.

This happened to me and I was totally panicked. It's easy to do but easy to fix.

IF you put it all back together properly these are the circuits in a 1984 standard fuse box. The large diagram is from a Wagonner which had the same fuse box but the schematic is for a 1984-86 CJ. You will be looking for Red wires that are shorted or not connected to what it should have been. There are a number of Red wires as they are live with the Ignition in ON and START.
