2013 ABS- Got water on my CB and appeared to short it out.
Long time lurker..no post... New to the 1800 Owners group, but had a 1200 Aspy and a '99 SE...Many of smiles on those two and looking for as many or more on my New-to-me used 1800.
I'm sure the info is out there somewhere but I guess I didn't put the correct incantations in the search engine to yield a answer...at least that I noticed.
I got water in the lower part of my trunk. The 20A fuse blew that carried the Audio, flashers, CB... I disconnected the Audio and CB unit and the fuse didn't blow. I connected back the Audio, the fuse didn't blow. When I connected back the CB,the fuse blew. Therefore, I concluded it was the CB unit at the bottom of the trunk where the little bit of water had gotten causing the problem. Yes, all things to the best of my knowledge was working just fine before the water spillage.
I can get a "free" pre-2012 CB and the "adapter harness". Is there that much difference that I should worry about between the 2013 CB and the Pre-2012 CB? In my opinion if it works as good, I don't have a problem with it being an older CB.
...and, has anyone got any experience in adding a drain to that audio/cb box in the lower area of the trunk so this problem shouldn't happen again.
Thanks for reading..and your help.
