Double check the battery install, make sure it isn't but in backwards, negative to ground, positive to main power supply and starter. Then start checking for blown main fuses or fuselinks.

fuse links.very likely. prolly slow blow wires. also locate every ground on.the.vehicle and clean them. clean all wiring connectii.s. look for shorts or bare wires. check injector harnesses if mpi. thats to keep it running and working right. you blew a fuse link. prolly right by the battery. should be a big white wire and a red wire. theres a box with a black red green and brown wires. make sure they arent burnt melted or corroded. find out whats shorting out or itll happen again. i bet its a w.6 liter g54b engine. very very finicky and the wiring is a nightmare. good luck.lol

I need to know location of both fuse boxes on 1988 dodge raider


There is one in the engine compartment called the power distribution box, the other one is inside on the drivers side, look for an access door or lid just under the dash.

Where is the power box at in the engine compartmeent,i cant find it.


Just follow the 10 gauge wire from the battery positive you'll find it.

That big 10 gauge ran along side the back wall of engine compartment,and was bolted to a metal flange.the negative went to ground.still cant locate it hmmmmm


Here's a bad wiring from Dodge, this must be the Mitsubishi unit. GO TO: https://www.moparpartsgiant.com/parts-list/1987-dodge-raider/electrical-wiring-harness.html
