    New member here and I searched with no conclusion. 2013 348 with a paccar 8.

    I have a 348 straight truck that sat for 1 month. Prior to this had been flawless. The batteries died, so i charged them up. Now the truck turns over strong, but won't crank. The ABS doesn't do its clicking check down, no fuel pump, no door chime, no AC fan blowing.

    Grabbed the test light and noticed that half of the fuse panel had no power. Popped the dash gauge cluster out and chased it to the 70 amp relay (heard they're problematic). The relay tests good and I bought a new one for kicks, but there's no power on one of the legs. I can make a jumper and the engine start and runs perfectly.

    Is there a fuse that supplies juice to the relay? The ignition seems to test properly as well.

    A Huge thanks in advance for any insight that could be sent my way

    I would manually check every fuse that has no power. Push on them all and make sure they are snug and tight in the fuse panel. I drove a brand new 579 that fuses would wiggle loose and fall smooth out of the terminal. Another thing i would check, if it is easy to do at least, is the lugs on the back of the fuse panel. It could be that those are coming loosened and just need to be tightened.
     
    Brokepete Thanks this.

    I wasn't able to open it. I got a corrufike error.
    I cleaned and replaced the fuses. Still nothing.

    Awesome thank you. Tomorrow this truck and I will have a wrestling match. Of all else fails I'll make a jumper to get it back to the shop.

    I'm hoping for an inline fuse coming off the batteries
