testing the control panel

things are getting interesting on my 72 Overlander.
I lost power to the control panel ( I have power to the gray wire that is the battery voltage, gray and black wires,) but there is no other power reading with my light.

We lost the overhead light fan, the water pump, and all the lights on the control panel.

What do you think and where can I get a way of testing the control panel'

Thanks
Jpeterman

Sounds like a fuse.

It does sound like a fuse, and that was the first thing I checked. All the fuses were good, I took all of them out and replaced them using dialectic grease.
Still no go, so I'[ll try to check the continuity of the wires tomorrow.
I just can't find a wiring diagram that tells what to check for 12v or ground.

Thanks for the reply though.

I'm pretty sure the control panel has fuses, too. Did you check those?
Another thing. Since you say that the main fuse for the circuit is good, you may have a bad ground or short.

Were you messing with the hitch wiring when it went out?

Circuit 5 - blue - feeds the panel and is also the charge line according to the diagram. Did you lose the reading lights also. Does the light AND the fan not work. The fan should be on circuit 5 - the light should be on circuit 4 - brown.

I did not see any fuses in the control panel box, we lost the fan and water pump, but all the lights work.

I haven't worked on the hitch wiring, but would like to know if that would cause a problem later.

Thanks again for everyone's input.
