Hello all. Been lurking here for the past 1 1/2 years and now it's my turn to join the electrical problem crowd. After 1 1/2 years and nearly 10,000 trouble free (mostly) miles of enjoyment, my current 87 GN has lost power to several fuses in fuse box. I am no expert in this department but do have the basic understanding of how it works. I've been around turbo Buicks for 30 plus years (bought a WE4 new) so I am very aware of all their quirks. Issue started two weeks ago after I noticed the volt gauge erratically bouncing between 12 and 16 volts while driving home. A few minutes later I pulled back into the driveway, shut it off and noticed the fans were still running ( they have never done that before). Turned the key back on for a few seconds and poof, lost power to several things. At this time I also noticed the dreaded faint smell of an electrical short . Popped the hood to look around and noticed that the exposed metal part of the connector to dual fans (intrepid fans I believe but not sure since I bought the car this way) ground out against the intercooler pipe. First thing I checked were the fuses, all looked good. I could find no smoked wires anywhere, under the hood or dash. Next I checked the fusible links by the starter and they looked in perfect shape as well. I then put a test light on the wires and confirmed power before and after each link. I do have power to the seats, wipers, headlights, taillights, radio, ac/heat blower fan, under hood light, interior dome light. I do not have power to the ignition, fuel pump, alky control, aftermarket gauges, blinkers, dash lights. I love driving my car, not sure where to start next and need help. Thanks in advance for any and all assistance!
