1981 wagon gl

anyone had this happen? I believe a leak around my stock roof
rack is resulting in a damp fuse box under the dash..

Managed to drive through the woods/mud in the dark this morning but I'm
hoping it's just a dash fuse or two... Think I know why the
windshield was fogged... ;)

sound familiar?

I dont know about the 81's, but in my 85 Brat there is a fuse that covers the dash lights and tail/marker lights. Mine kept blowing all the time, so I checked it out and it was the tail lights grounding out because they were caked with mud, and when they got wet it blew the fuse. Check all the connections at all your external marker lights and the tail lights.

Www.thereIfixedit.com

it was the 25amp fuse in the underdash fuse box. It wasn't damp
but it was corroded at the contacts, so it's been damp before..

Thanks for the tip about the mud, mines definitely covered in mud so
I'll clean it up this spring.

not certain if this is why mine failed, but it was the 25amp... :-\
