OK. I promised I would post what I find. I am good to my word, as hard as this is. ................I found out that I am an idiot. I checked fuse again and it read continuity fine. Decided to check current on both sides, uh well only one side. conclusion. yes i am a halfbaked. No illegal drug pun implied. I own tanning salons. I replaced fuse and it took off and looks like it working fine. I am still a little confused why continuity is good but fuse is blown.
Thanks for all your help. I was ready to call in for reinforcements.
