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

Quick walkthrough

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 walkthrough

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 the operations center on level 6, they can pass a high Repair skill check and then restart the power. After power has been restored, the Vault Dweller can progress to level 5.

Accessing the secure testing labs on level 5 of the complex completes this quest.



  • One should be mindful of the time spent repairing, as each failed attempt will increase the clock by 20 minutes.
  • The only way to guarantee success on the first try is with 55 Repair or greater.
  • If the Vault Dweller just repairs the generator, it will activate the security systems.
    • Repairing the generator and then interacting with ZAX allows it to turn off the security.
