Well that looks like someone just tapped in to that wire and threw in some diodes, I think it would be safe to cut that extra wire out along with those diodes and re-attach the wire to itself. I dont understand why they cut the wire so much just to put butt-connecters back in place? wtf

----------


That yellow and black wire is driver door trigger or right window up or hot in accessory/run to radio

----------



That yellow wire with the white stripe(looks white, is it a grey stripe?) I have no info on, could be an alarm arm or disarm since my diagram left the wire color unlisted for both of those. Same for the black wire with the grey strip.

The grey/red strip wire is the passenger door trigger

Honestly i really want to punch the ******* that wired it up like this. This is epic hall of fame failure for electrical wiring........

i still cant believe the amount of butt-connectors he used, seriously he cut the wire then reconnected with a butt-connecter like if he wasn't sure if he wanted to cut it in the first place wtf wtf wtf wtf. And then, no shrink wrap over the exposed diodes, seriously? Dont worry about it too much tho, it can be reversed.

I think who ever out this in put it on the wrong wire first thats why there is a splice I'd check the butt connection if good seal the ens with liquid tape then cut the diodes out splice the it & seal it

Well all that stuff is for the door locks. If you don't have aftermarket lock controls now, it used to.

Looked at demons truck today. Fuse #26 was blown. As soon as another fuse is put in it blows. Thought it might be shorted. Well, putting the test light tool on the #26 slot lights up the bulb So its still getting power. Is it getting to much power/to many amps? blowing a 10amp fuse. This fuse is for (RCM) (GEM) battery relay and aux. realy box.

Wire colors coming out of the fuse block at #26 are Yellow/White and Brown/Black. The Brown Black runs up to #17, then has a Orange and Blue. (2 wires) on the other side.

Amps are drawn, not pushed. There is no such thing as "getting too many amps". You will only get as many amps as the load on the circuit draws. Whatever is on that circuit is drawing more than 10 amps.

The GEM was soaked and is fried. All you need is one diode in the GEM to blow and you'll have a dead short to ground. I don't know why you guys are surprised it still doesn't work.

well, this is new info that we did not have. Just putting it out there

were is the gem located?

----------

and also, we should be able to unhook the GEM and the fuse should not blow. Indicating GEM at fault?
