Tech speedo check eng. All that works except fore low coolent light lol that one works lol but won't go off. And don't light light just blew. I checked chiltons and then checked fuse box and changed all fuses. Except the CB fuses cause I had to order them but they coming soon. Figured fuel gauge is most likely the sending unit in tank. Dome light is blown light bulb it worked till yesterday lol. Just getting bugs worked out of it after sitting for so long
Be careful of making any frivolous or nonsense posts to get your count up.
The site administrator/owner frowns on that.
What you posted so far should be fine even though it is somewhat related because it may be from different causes.
I thought the count was 100 posts, but I may be wrong. Check each vendor/site supporter's forum for instructions on how to get the discounts.
It could very well be the dimmer switch. The rheostats they use do fail over time, especially if they are used a lot. Just check the input side of the dimmer when the dash lights go out and see if it has power to there. If it does then that is likely the problem.
