Wiring Diagram/ Electrical problems

Taking a break on doing body work after installing me new JC whitney Fenders, and Im going to start working out some of the mechanical bugs.

Here are the issues Im about to start trying to fix

1.) No instrument panal/gauage lights (Headlights work)
2.) No running lights when headights are on
3.) Odometer/speedomter dont work (Sure its the speed sensor have yet to pull it to look
4.) Tire rubs on sway bar when wheel is fully turned. (Car got in a wreck some point in its life so might be a little out of wack. any other ideas?)
5.)Gas gauage does not work (any way to test the OHMS coming out of the sender before dropping the tank to see if its dead?)

there is a fuse in the panel up under the dash next to the emergency brake pedal that is for the dash/running lights. adjust the steering stops out to stop your tire rub. take the center dash apart and clean the contacts on the back of the fuel gauge. and you can test for ohms there as well.

For #1), my problem was corroded copper traces in the flexible board material on the back of the gauge cluster. I know how to solder, so I gingerly removed the flex board, cleaned up all of the corrosion, and soldered in some 18 gauge wire to replace the corroded traces. It's like using a jumper wire for an open circuit. Then I used hot glue to hold down the wire right over the old trace. Spray some electronics sealant over the whole thing, and put it back onto the gauge cluster. You should check each segment of copper trace with an ohmmeter or continuity tester. Sometimes you can't see the cracks.

For #5), if cleaning the contacts doesn't work, look for damage caused by corrosion.

Good luck,
Hank

Grab a factory manual. They are $30 for the CD version. They have some of the best wiring diagrams I've seen in a factory manual. I can't imagine trying to troubleshoot without one.
