We climbed down the crater to the first level and everything seemed to be according to plan. The power was off, so we didn't need to circumvent the security.Ancient Brotherhood disk

Turn on power for the Glow is a side quest in Fallout.

Quick walkthroughEdit

Side Quest: Turn on power for the Glow
Enter the Glow and go to level 6.
Repair the generator.
Reward: 1000 XP
Access to level 5 of the facility

Detailed walkthroughEdit

In order to turn the power on for the Glow, the Vault Dweller will need to make their way down through the levels, picking up the key access cards along the way. Once they reach level 6, they can pass a repair check to fix the generator, which requires a high Repair skill level and then restart the power. One should be mindful of the time spent repairing, as each failed attempt will increase the clock by 20 minutes.

Access to Level 5 of the complex grants the Vault Dweller the option of snagging the plasma rifle. An additional 1000 XP are granted once the Vault Dweller arrives at Level 5.



  • The Vault Dweller can easily turn on the power on the first try with 55 Repair or greater.
  • Using a tool can significantly increase the Vault Dweller's chances of repairing the generator.
  • Repairing the generator and then turning on the power from ZAX allows him to turn off the robots and move around the base freely.
  • If the Vault Dweller just repairs the generator, it will activate the security systems.
