2010 Collins Chevy Fuse Chart?

Hello,
My electric door switch stopped working. Does anyone know where the fuse is located for the door or have a schematic of this era Collins builds on a Chevy Express platform?

I emailed Collins a while back and never heard back from them.

Thanks!

the original express didnt have an electric door so the fuse shouldnt be in either one of the chevy fuse boxes.
all of my collins accessory fuses were in the compartment above the dash and or above the drivers seat and there is no schematic that i have ever seen.
the only way i figured out what wire went where was tracing the wiring out and most was marked on the wire every foot or so.
collins hasnt responded to me very well over the years.
the only response i ever received from them is that my weatherstripping was out of date and they dont make it anymore.

Thanks. I figured it was above the driver somewhere.

i have the manual for the 98-2010 model express van if you need any of the chevy wiring diagrams.
but nothing for collins.
after opening the wire looms it was farely simple to see what wire did what because everything was marked.
i cant help with the electric door because mine was already demoed along with the pedestal before i got it.
have you already pulled your old flooring up?

I have a Chevy Express factory service manual on a thumb drive.

No I didnt pull the floor up. There's not much rust on my bus so I just went right over the existing floor w some laminate padding then the flooring. I didnt even pull up those seat tracks, just went right over the damn things lol. You can see the results in my build thread https://www.skoolie.net/forums/f27/2...bus-36460.html.

in my wifes 04 the only thing above the drivers head fuse wise was the power to the auxilliary A/C condensor underneath.
well behind the removable panel is the raceway for everything leaving the over dash compartment.
if you havent gotten to that yet then let me know and i can send you pictures.

Thanks. I left all the wiring intact. I read stories about the wrong things getting yanked and the bus not starting, etc. Only thing I disconnected and removed was the wheelchair lift and I reused the wires and the positive post in the engine bay to hook up my dc-dc charger.

Hi! If you still need the wiring diagrams I might be able to help you. I was able to get several files from the Collins dealer where I purchased my bus. I didnít get the one you need, but I did get a list of wiring diagrams they have available.


It looks like you need document 00035183 (DIAGRAM,WRG,FEA 30978-07 W/30210-17 KY/CT DOOR CONTROL) or document 00036973 (DIAGRAM,WRG,FEA 30978-04 W/30210-17,472,475 DOOR CONTROL).


I have several diagrams that I received, mostly to do with the vehicle rear ac, lighting and heating systems that I would be happy to email to anyone who needs them.

Looking for a Service Manual for my 2007 Chevy 3500 Express. Is there somewhere I could buy a similar flash drive? Or where do you suggest buying the paper version?

For an '07 3500, you can find pretty much most of what you need in a Chilton's or Haynes manual.
