dash lights on 87

What are all the lights that come up on the dash of an 87? All that come up are my blinkers and sometimes my high beams, funny thing is I dont have high beams I think lol

Unfortunately you have the crappy circuit paper copper pathways to each of the bulbs so that system is problematic at best. You may have burned out bulbs and you need to hope this is the case. Sometimes you can gently clean the contacts and spread the socket prongs to make better contact. I just went thru and tested all my bulbs and the pathways and made adjustments where needed.

Have a heart, the same crappy circuit paper thingys run your gauges too! My gauges are on the counter right now and I am hardwiring them and the lighting so everything will work and I can get rid of the weak link. Write up to follow in the next day or two.

Good luck!

Can you post up pictures of your dash?

Soon I will be putting in new gauges, will this help it? I don't like doing electrical lol how would I solve this? Replace the copper wiring? Or just completely re do it all?
