No power to truck

Asked by Jul 16, 2017 at 12:33 AM about the 2004 Ford F-150 FX4 Ext. Cab SB 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I disconnected all of the wires going into my fuse
box. I planned to fix one fuse that no longer would
hold my fuse. I decided that the task was too hard
and I would just do without that fuse...I reconnected
all of the wire harnesses and I have absolutely no
power going into my vehicle. Not even the dome
light comes on. Halfway through disconnecting the
fuse box I realized I should probably disconnect the
battery. So I took off both terminals. Please help
asap I was supposed to go on a trip in the morning
and the wife is PO as am I. The battery is good. I've
already tested it and even put a battery charger on
to see if that would help but it won't.

Buy a new fuse box assembly. Probably around $400.

I feel it's more simple than that...it almost feels like I tripped a main breaker...but this is a car and they don't have breakers..

you were pulling all those wires with the batt. connected ? do you have a multi tester ? I think you're in over your head , wire a house first then try a vehicle
