speedo and tach also? what year of rig?
That's because you ain't got the 3G 130 amp Taurus alternator on there yet.I am having same issues except with all my gauges. Sence there was no final resolution to this issue I am asking if cluster "voltage regulator" would cause the same issues on an 86 XLT bronco 302 EFI. Just started happening. Also noticed that when I pull the knob for head lights the blinkers on the dash come on and the "high beams" light comes on (dash). Yet the head lights won't. If I tap the high beam switch floor a few times the lights come on. I am just curious if the cluster could be causing this or if there is major issues somewhere else. Also just thought of something. I read there is a gauge cluster wire on the engine somewhere. Can anyone post a pic of it's location that way I could see if it is grounding as I would think that could cause the gauges to peg. Thanks all.
By all means fix your voltage drain, if you have one, but the red tops are LAST priority, after a used $30.00 Taurus alternator and this $12.00 parts allowing us 86'ers to do the 3G thing.That on my 2 do list :rockon espically sence I have a set of roll lights on top and running extra lights on front and soon to have a winch. But wait let me stop ya right there Sixlitre, those itmes listed are not connected to battery right now. I also plan to do the dual battery red top and yellow tops. But can't go further till I get this thing kicked. Hell I can't even go at night as dash lights are not working or so dim that I can't see them. :doh0715:
Why is it every previous owner thinks he'd the lord's gift at installing electrical components (when they never are:banghead).Well I think I have narrowed it down to 3 possible things.
1. Ground for Roll lights.
2. Head light switch.
The Previous owner added the lights and is grounding them right under the head light switch. He also added a after market radio but did his own rigging as it turns on without keys etc..I was driving last night and rolled the window down and turned the radio on and then realized the dash started working.
