its on an 84' GL hatch... analog gauge cluster.. the oil pressure gauge just sits on 0 doesn't even budge.. i know it has oil pressure since i drove it home 300 miles from NJ.. just bugs me not havin that gauge working.. i've checked the wired to the oil sendin unit, they are all there and connected...
maybe a bad sending unit? or gauge?
2nd one is the heater blower switch.. doesn't do a thing, just looks neat on teh dash.. i pulled it out last night, everything is connected, and the switch clicks like it should, just no blower..
bad blower motor? or??
suggestions on what to look for would be nice :-)

1. broken fuse.
2. broken resistor coils. Don't know if the EA81s had these like the EA82s, which have them behind the glove box.
3. broken blower motor. Check if juice gets to motor. If so, then a junkyard blower is called for. Try Sunny's in Culpeper; they have several EA81s.
