2003 freightliner Columbia, no power outlets, no interior lights! please help!

#1
i'm tired of going to the dealer and getting nothing fixed! and when they do "fix" something they only half fix the problem!
the truck is a 2003 freightliner columbia 12.7 Detroit 10 speed with sleeper.


my problem is, i have no interior lights! no over head lights. none of the 4 in cab 12v outlets work.
i did notice the fuse box behind the drivers door had a little fire. i originally thought that was the problem. fuse box was replaced and still nothing works.

today i went out with a test light, (i need to buy a multimeter)

i have no power to the cigarette lighter fuse on either or the 2 fuse boxes.
no power on the dash nor the one behind the door..

where do i check next?

yep, apprently it common for water to leak where the wind deflector attaches to the cab.
the fuses just flared up inside the panel.
this happened prior to myself driving the truck.

where would the 12 volt poser feed to the fuse/relay panel be located?
i'm new to trucking. bare with me please.

You might also check the condition of the batteries. If the voltage gets low enough the system will shut down all non essential electrical circuits so that the truck can still be started.

Once the system voltage is high enough then the circuits that were shut down will come back on.

Everything is fine! i have a friend who is an electrical engineer.
he's more qualified then the tards at the freightliner dealer! who was supposed to fix the problem in the 1st place!
i only make 1 or 2 runs a week! lets make this perfectly clear! i'm not an other moron fat lazy hamburger eating over the road truck driver!
i was hired because i can work on my own truck! thats my job! if it's broke i fix it and drive the truck.
the the only truck driver this company has.

this is why i will never go over the road!
i don't eat pizza!
i run a 6 min 3 sec mile....

i will always have good paying local runs. because i can do more then drive truck.
So can I.

I just prefer not to because I'm lazy.

And fat.

And I can do a mile a lot quicker than 6 min because I just hop my lazy, fat ass in the car and hit the gas.
