Re: [DMCForum] Dash problem



Sometimes your information is dead on.  This is exactly what was going on.

I pulled the dash last night after tracing the wires and not finding
anything wrong, other than the PO's fixes.  And found a little problem with
the tach its self.  A clip fell off the back of the speedo and caused a
little short, which burnt almost half the circuit board on the back of the
tach.  I'll post a picture later.

So does anyone have an extra tach they would like to part with at a very
affordable price, or be interested in a trade for a spin-on fuel filter?  Or
maybe know an x-reff?

I had an almost similar occurrence with my MR2.  When I tried to turn on
the lights, various dash lights lit up and the lights did not.  Searching
the electrical diagrams for a while, I found that the systems lighting up
and the system not working were connected to the same ground.  A solder
joint in a connector was loose (for the ground wire), so the ground
became +12volts when i put the lights on.  This drove current backwards
through some lights making them light.

Time to tear apart your dash.
