Question GL1500 dash warning lights

Hi Guys
All my warning lights works fine, but when I turn the ignition on all I get is oil pressure and neutral.
I was under the impression I should get all the warning lights on for a couple of seconds.
Fuel gauge works (i think! low fuel). Temp works.
The background lighting in the dash unit works too.
I have no audio unit fitted at all as its toast, but that shouldn't do it should it?
I have no time in the LCD rectangle (actually I have nothing in there). I guess that is linked to the stereo???
The wiring diagram I have doesn't tell me much. All the fuses seem OK, although I haven't been through them all with a meter. As I say all the warning lights work.
Any help would be much appri... apresh...apprrec... would make me happy
Thanks

Peter

I think that LCD unit controls the bulb check. It should work without the radio.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

There is a ground wire under all of that mess, you will see it as you take out the radio controls. That may be the ground for that whole system. The first thing I look for is power and if I see power then I look for a bad ground.

Hi Guys
Just to update this problem......
I checked fuse 1 and 10, both were good.
With the key in acc I had 12v at the fuses and the acc connector at the top of the fuse box, but not at the Light green/ Black wire at the back of the lcd.
I checked and checked. 12v with a fly lead direct to the lcd brings the clock up.
In the end I pulled the connector apart that is above the left hand fan. the one that comes from the key.
The connectors were really yuk inside. All white powdery crud. I cleaned them up and the clock comes on now and I get a light test too.
I suppose the connector was good enough to give a reading at the fuse box, but not good enough to actually power anything??

So thank you all for your help and support. Dave0430 was completely correct, the lcd/clock works independently from the audio system.

Now on to the next problem..... Wheres that big hammer?
