I don't understand the drop to 9.75v S & F module VREG output.
Cat troubleshooting rule #1...always start with the obvious. 9.75v is not right.
Follow electrical safety precautions.
Keeping your meter negative lead (common port) at the same grounding location
. Probe to good metal contact with your meter positive lead (V positive port), meter selection on DCvolts.
Unit powered up, and connector disconnected...
Probe all three soldered on fuses, first at their power in
lead. Then at their power out
All 6 test points should read Battery voltage. (your 12.75v)
If it drops at all
across the fuse, the fuse is bad. If the power in
is low, the problem is further upstream. If they all check good, your problem is downstream.
Remember, a bad fuse is a result
of a problem. Typically not the problem itself.
