Thanks, Mike.My guess is the voltage regulator on the backside of the cluster. Give me a bit to grab wiring diagrams and I can be more specific and tell you what to check
Shuts down, not s down...lolOkay, finally a decent day and I can give an update. Key on, both the oil pressure gauge and volt gauge both show as if the car is running. Oil pressure sits at half, and voltage shows low charging, yet both should not be registering.
I grounded #12 as suggested, no change to fuel gauge. If I disconnect the slosh module, fuel gauge will peg, but oil pressure gauge stays in the center. With the car running, oil pressure gauge pegs. When I pull fuse 18, everything s down as it should.
Any ideas on this, Mike?
Also, with car running, if I remove the wire connected to the oil pressure sending unit, the gauge drops from max, back to center, and it should drop to zero. Is there something I am missing?
I have had the needle off already, but I will try that just to make sure. As far as the slosh module goes, no, I do not have a spare. It is very strange, like I said, as the volt meter is also showing like the car is charging very low with just the key on and not running. Once I turn the key off, both the volt meter and oil pressure gauge drop to the bottom as they should.Two things.
I think your oil pressure needle is not sitting where it should be. It probably needs to be removed, cycle the key on and off. Then reposition it pointing to 0 with key off and then it probably will behave normally.
As for the fuel, I think your slosh module is gone. Do you have a spare?
7 degrees....... And that’s why I am as far north as I will ever be!!I will eventually get around to that, but right now it is only 7° here, and the car is not going to be driven for a while (Chicago winters suck). I will definitely check that before the slosh module...thanks for the tip!
