  1. bloody gauges are driving me crazy,,, none working - - where do i look first??? fuses are ok.. where do i go after that???
  2. also - while checking the fuse box with the tester - of the 14 fuses in there, i had power going through 12 of them ( only two that did not show power were headlights as they were off ) all the other stuff was also off and not powered on - so should it all show power??? or is this wrong? should it only show power at fuse box when that item is turned on???
  3. ya...most of my dash lights are out.. one one that works is tach and heater panel.. rest are out...
  4. used an electrical tester and no power there.. i assume you dont have to press the light socket button in where the bulb does..?? i just grounded my tester and poked in there and scratched around.... no power... on both front ones... is there a relay or a ground i may be able to find? im trying to find side markers on eklectrical diagram but cant find them in fsm for 260
  5. 74 260z - just got my rear markers working after taking off steering wheel controls and they magically started working - but front ones still dont work.. any thing to try??
  6. oh boy.... so if the key is on and no power to the black link i have a problem.. where do i look..?? wire diagram?
  7. i have 2 fusible links on firewall near battery. should they both have power when key is turned to power position? right now only green one does.. i have a bunch of dead electrical stuff.. could it be from the black one? or does black one only get power when car is running??
  8. could it be a fusible link? i have 2 by firewall... only one gets power when key is to power position...
  9. ok..so here is whats going on... checked all fuses... only fuse with no power are headlights - as they were not on.. so all fuses worked.. horn does not work, windsheild wipers click, washer, clicks, no fan, no no turn signals no dome lights.. and no guages,, no fuel volts temp etc.. all dead here are some photos of wires .. relay under drivers feet.. rest in the steering colum... does black need to be somewhere or

  11. apparently the vacuum advance does not work on the 280zx matchbox dizzy i just put in my 260.. is that ok? i have been told car will run fine without it and some guys dont even hook it up... when sucking on hose nothing happens - when the mechanic did that.. what will effects be without it? can i change the vacuum advance ? can i fix it?? thanks
