I am planing a trip from Mi. to Ak and I am trying to fix some stuff I have a taillight on the dash that on and no lights on my gauges before i go in there and start poking around I thought I would ask someone
Have you checked the fuses to see if one has blown? I know its a simple question, but the it could be that simple. I'm sure someone with more knowledge on the 1200's will be along shortly to help out also
if the taillight buld is lit permanent on the dash it means your rear tail light bulb isnt working, when you turn your ignition on it should light up momenterily and so should your fuel light, is it just the speedo and tach that are not working or is it the rest of the dash.
try replacing the bulb for the tail light first, a lot of times a bad bulb will blow the fuse. the it shorts to ground when the filament breaks I've seen this happen many times on old cars I've owned.:baffled:Sometimes it's the simple things that get you.
