View Full Version : Can defective ignition switch kill instruments?

November 21st, 2017, 07:03
Changed several things in one day, including NSS and ignition switch, and now my instrument panel is dead. Cleaned and greased the two connectors in back, will go looking today for a bad ground, but also wonder if the new ignition switch I installed is the culprit since gauges worked fine before. Possible?

its possible something got bumped replacing the switch. check fuses and make sure nothing got shorted.
