Gday all,

Long time since I posted here but keep a close eye on all that is going on.

I have a problem with no power on my 9323. I believe that I have blown an internal fuse but am unable to locate any fuses within the radio and a thorougher search on the web gives me an indication that fuses exist but no location information. It also states that no fuses are in the remote head.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Lewis

G'day Lewis,

The only fuse I am aware of in my 9323 is at 32A one in the ceramic type holder in the power lead that plugs into the main body. (I also have a further fuse near where the lead comes off the battery).

Cheers

John

Thanks John,

That 32A fuse is supposed to be located at the battery and is designed to prevent the power cable from causing issues if it shorts back to the body of the car (according to the Codan manuals). They do talk about further fuses and protection inside the main unit........

Your guess is as good as mine

Hello

I have no idea but a search of the yahoo codan outback radio group forum showed a person with the same/similar problem - which stated:

"I found the fault - it was a blown fuse on the A pair "

No idea what the "A pair" is.

Maybe asked the question on the forum..

you will probably have to register first.

Cheers

Lewis,

Here is the Service Manual
Section 5 has a fault finding tool.

Thanks Bob,

Went through this a couple of days ago and could not find any reference to the location of fuses. Only reference I could find was in the glossary.

Will try giving Codan a ring tomorrow when they are back at work.

Sorry cookie1. Can't help with that. Might be worth you giving the HF radio club a try though

There are a couple of fuses in the PA section of the radio. If you take the big cover off,
you should see them near the red and black power cables.
They look like bits of wire soldered to a couple of posts on the board.

Thanks for the info. I was caught out as they looked like test points rather than fuses. One of these is blown so once I source a suitable fuse wire, it should solve the issue.

Thanks to all that responded to this problem. Your help has been greatly appreciated. Hopefully a little bit of knowledge gained by all who have had a read.
