See if you get power from the gray wire. Use a 12 volt bulb, or a multimeter.

My 1981 corvette tach quite working how do I get working again?


1981 Corvette has an electical tachometer that is driven by impulses from the distributor. First, check for blown fuses, next make sure the tach wire is plugged into the distributor. Next bypass silver tach filter or capacitor located by manifold to see if the tach moves at all. If these steps do not reveal a change in tach operation, then the most obvious next step is to remove the tachometer and get a new board for the tachometer. Unscrew and remove cluster lens and then unscrew tach bezel, and gently pull out the tach noting position of insulators. I believe these boards are available still at local autoparts locations. Replace board, note position of insulators and reinstall tach, bezel and lens. Old corvette are cool and are pretty easy to work on! Should be fixed, enjoy!

Why are there three dark green radio wires in the 2002 gmc sonoma


According to autozone online, there are two black wires for ground, a dark green to key power, orange to batt power, gray to dash lights, dark blue and dark green to steering wheel controls when equipped, a purple-while for light dimmer and gray to computer data link.
The dark green that has voltage powers the radio and the orange is for the station memory. The gray wire with power when the dash lights are on is for the radio light.

1982 Corvette fuse relay location and do you have to drop the gas tank to replace the fuel pump?


Yes, you need to remove tank.
There is a fuel pump test connector, either a single wire connector in engine compartment, left side, OR terminal G of the ALCL, the diagnostic test connector under the dash. Put battery voltage there and see if pump works.
Diagram also shows a fuse for the pump, probably in the dash's fusebox.The relay is probably is there also.
