i really don't know what to do here. a few days ago i was trying to hook up the underhood light and somehow short circuited something and blew a fuse. i replaced the fuse but then my alarm didn't work. just today i figured out that the alarm had its own fuses down by the coil so i replaced those and now it works. my problem is this, my gauge cluster also doesn't work! first the tach went out a few days ago, and then yesterday the entire thing except the battery light and speedo stopped working?! does anybody have any idea what the heck could be wrong with this thing, cause i have the entire dash out, and i still can't figure anything out? any help would be much appriciated.

do you have any wiring diagrams? you know a little about how to read them? This can seem overwhelming, but if you know what color wire powers that circuit, and what wire grounds it, you can re-ground it and and put in a new fuse and see if it works. If not you can purchase a short finder for $20 and find the fault in the positive wire or run a new one. Pretty simple huh? Get a Haynes Manual, they have pretty good wiring diagrams. Good luck.
