Another Instrument/dashboard Question

Recommended Posts

I feel bad for asking so many questions but I'm def getting better everyday. I have the Haynes manual but I cant seem to find much.

My windshield wipers only worked when I unplugged/plugged wire in engine bay. THe switch wouldnt work. Now they dont work at all.

Should something be connected on this prong?

The one that doesnt have anything connected to it or is it normal?

The instrument cluster there is a wire I unplugged from my old one but now where it was plugged in on my old one there is already a wire on my new one so I cant plug it in where it used to be.

Where should this wire be connected?

That provides the tach signal from the engine.

The white wire that is now on center tach terminal post should go to the tach bulb in lower left corner of your cluster (as viewed from the back).

Your wiper switch appears to be wired correctly - the colors match the schematic I have. (The posts are numbered on the backs of switches)

Not sure about the empty post on the wiper switch - can you read the # next to the post?

Check your fuses. Make sure the fuses and their copper mounts are free of oxidation. That means the connection points should be shiny bright.

What year/model car do you have?

....AND WHILE YOUR INTO the electrics - when you see a bunch of

wires at a ground connection - remove, sand all paint off the body sheet metal, sand the connector till clean, reattach, then

dab some zinc primer on it for protection. use a flat washer on both

sides of the connecter for secure, large surface contact

before screwing it back on.

Poor Ground = No Worky

So I plugged it all back in after sanding down what u said. I turned it on reved the engine to see if the RPM's would work and they dont. The fuel and temp don't turn on.

The red L light lights up when I turn the key once and the green light for the hazzard lights works. Im a bit lost.

The spedometer works .
