Intermittant Dash Electrical Issue?
Posted 11 March 2008 - 12:01 PM
But then later, charging light goes off, and the fuel and temp gauges resume their correct position. Looked the fuses over and they all look OK. Problem happened again today, and the car is driving fine, so I do believe that the alternator is charging the battery just fine. Though I haven't checked this for sure yet.
I should also say that some time ago, my heater core sprang a leak. I bypassed it, but shortly after that, my dash interior lights quit.
Anyway, my question, is the charging light and the fuel and temp gauges on the same circuit? Do you all think the problem is obvious, the wiring in the dash is probably a mess for the core leak?

Check the battery cables, the engine grounds, and get the charging system load tested. I am guessing that it may be a bad ground someplace.

One day I am going to pull the dash out and I fear that I am going to find an electrical mess back there. I bought a new dash that only has a couple of hairline cracks (will need to paint it the right color too). I also have an NOS heater valve. If we get the heater cores special ordered, that's the last piece I'll need to justify opening her up from that end.
Anyway Jon23, I see you changed your avatar. That little Brat looks sweet. Do you have better pictures?

look at the 2nd page of the thread.....Let's see the brats
I have a couple bigger pictures in that thread. All it needs now is paint! I have a set of NOS BRAT decals for it when I do paint it. I wish I could find a set with a silver background (like the ones on it now). The ones I have are burgundy in the background, but I like the silver better. I have never seen another brat with the same decal as mine. Anybody know where to get a set of those? If I find a set, I am going to sell the NOS set I have.
