Default 94 250 Cummins Electrical Grief

My New Dearest and Bestest Friends in Web-Land...
Have Mercy on this poor farm boy.... I can fix Dang near anything that burns petrochem fuel, uses aggravated electrons to heat a filament, or is round-holds air-made of rubber and mounts on a steel or aluminum wheel.

But My VERY FIRST Dodge Diesel a 94 5.9L with a Long Bosch Injector Pump has a serious electrical problem.

A month ago, there was smoke issuing from under the dash while I went to the big city to pick up some items for my monastical existence on the farm. I didn't stop the engine during the pick up and when the AC /fan blower quit, I rolled down both windows. The other items that quit were the Radio, turn signals, hazard flashers, headlights, cruise control, wipers, horn, trailer brakes ... well everything electrical including the cigar lighter.

I pulled the wiring loom from under the dash and a large portion was MELTED. ARRRRRGH! So, I went to the salvage yard and bought the best (says them) and mostly correct 1996 mod Harness for underdash through firewall and all electrical connections under the hood. I even got the Fusebox that screws into the dash on the drivers side. I have replaced EVERY FUSE and RELAY under dash and under hood that I could find. The Good news is Everything works EXCEPT the Turn signals and the AC / Fan Blower... the AC clutch won't engage and the fan doesn't blow on any setting.

If someone has had a similar problem, I'd love to know how you fixed that!

Thanks so much in advance!

Start with the blower motor problem by checking for power to the motor.




Start with the turn signals by checking for power to the flasher.

THanks a HEAP! RAM TECH!!!!!

Flashers are Good.
I'm gonna jump the clutch switch tomorrow to see if it is a low R134 issue. I don't think it is.. But, I got an email to replace the turnsignal, wiper switch assy on the column and see if that helps.
