It seems as though the lights that light my gauges chose to shut down...I've already tried the obvious (fuses, bulbs) but I know very little about electrical...the blinkers work and the high beam light works, just the speedo, tach and the other gauges failed...any help in fixing this is much appreciated...thanx...

Search Ebay for a dash cluster. MII's have a bad problem with the plastic housing that the guages go in becoming brittle and crumbling. I've seen one with every light and guage wire jumpered and soldered because of this. Could also be the printed circuit layer on the back of the cluster. All your working guages will swap into a good housing so just be sure the PC is good on the other set.

Just to be sure, you don't have the dimmer turned down on your headlight switch, do you?

The secret of success is sincerity. Once you can fake that, you got it made.
