Howdy,

Since the under dash fuse panel cover is missing in my Sierra, I'm wondering if the fuses in there are the correct amps and if it's normal to have a heap of empty slots.

Can someone please explain what fuse go's where, put up picture or draw a diagram.

Cheers.

I just got home and had a closer look, my fuse box seems to have a different configuration. Somehow I don't think a 25A fuse would belong in there :/

That link shows USA model wiring,
Great thing about the sierra is it has two fuses, 10a and 15a

Taken from my fuse cover for the 92 WT sierra, i can check the 85 LWB in the morning if its necessary
[10][10][10][15][15][15]
[15][15][15][15][10][15]

Its good to know what they are in case you need to pinch a fuse from somewhere not used (like heater or A/C)
also good to have the cover as it fits 3 spare fuses , from memory ANY 80's suzuki car will have the same size cover

Suzuki Sierra WT 92
Headlight R / Headlight -L / tail stop/ hazard horn / radio cigar / ACC
IG Coil - Meter / heater / rear defg / wiper washer / turn back / Air con

Keep in mind when diagnosing problems the above is a rough guide
when fixing a faulty radio issue with a friends suzuki lwb vit i discovered the dash lights no longer worked, checked fuses and ok... checked another fuse which seemed unrelated and it fixed it. The details are foggy but it sort of made sense at the time being a second circuit or something but lesson was learned. Check other fuses if it seems to be zero power.

Also while talking fuses, narva manual resetable blade fuses are worth the $10 when fault finding :D

This one shows 20A in the radio cigar so i guess that isn't too bad... but i like to errrr on the side of caution with fuses

Those 4 empty spots on mine don't have any fuse holders. And there's no switch or anything for the diagnostic port.

I forgot to mention, Mine is a '92 WT Soft top.
