Do I need to replace my Breaker Board?!

I have a 2011 Lacrosse, we had a Power outage while at a Campground... when power came back on, our slide out Interior lights would not work... we changed Blubs & checked fuses.... this is where my question is... while checking the fuse box, if you remove or have a Blown fuse a little red light comes on to Indicate something is wrong.... we get to the section that I think controls the interior lights I am referring to and when I remove fuse, no red light comes on.... I can remove & replace all others with light going on & off... but this is the only section that the red light indicator doesnít work... any suggestions?

The red light next to a blown fuse or a removed fuse will only come on if the load attached to the fuse is on and allowing the small amount of current to flow to turn it on. Basically, that little indicator LED is wired across the fuse holder.

You will need either a volt meter or a 12v test light. First verify battery voltage then see if you have 12volts at the fuse panel. Somewhere in between is an open in the 12v circuit feeding the fuse panel.

The lights are 12v so a power failure wouldn't of impacted them and I doubt if it is a fuse panel issue.

Since this is only the slide out lights I would start by inspecting the wires under the slide for damage. I nothing obvious you need a voltmeter to start checking.

Also you didn't mention how you checked the fuse if it was visual either replace it or check it with a meter set to a low resistance scale as fuses can sometimes develop a hairline fracture that can't be seen.
