Hello again Grant -

Thank you for your reply.

Yes Im sorry - it took me time to look up your schematics - and then type out your answer / reply ---which is as follows :

OK - its a common issue to either pop a fuse when taking a radio set out -or, tugging a wire / cable and disconnecting even partially, one of the connectors.

So - double check the push / pull connectors Grant - disconnect them and check carefully inside the block connectors to see if any wire / pin has broken - or pushed / pulled back inside the connector - hence not making a connection.

Then check the same at the radio - and refit them with some "force" to ensure a good connection - then see if now works.

Fuse wise... there are two fuse for this system per your reg.

The one is Fuse no. 6 - should be a blue 15 amp
The 2nd is Fuse no. 30 - again - a blue 15 amp.

Some of these sets had a fuse too in the wiring to the back of the set - or, in the very back of the set - so check for that too.

Someone may have changed the fuses for different amps therefore colours - so dont go off that - go off the numbers...

I think you will have it sorted working through as above -

- By all means let me know how you get on / or if you need anything more at all on this.....
