92 ACCORD what causes the gauges to quit working when the brake pedal is depressed, another problem is turning on the headlights and the engine dies any answer's ?


Hi Christopher:
I'd be checking to make sure that the grounds are nice and clean and working properly. When you step on the brake pedal you are activating a switch that sends power to the brake lights. The brake lights share bulbs with the signals and emergency flashers, so it is also possible that a dead short in any of those components could "steal" the power from the ignition.
At this point, it's a trouble shoot game for you to figure out what is working, and what is not.
That's part of the fun. Enjoy.

Blowing my number 8 fuse


If you are saying the dash lights and parking lights are out, it could be the headlight switch or a ground problem.

Dash gauges to include fuel gauge, speedometer, rpm gauge working intermittanly. All service lights work


GM had gauge cluster problems from 2000-2005. Bad stepper motors. On those units you have to replace the cluster or rebuild it with new stepper motors. Dealership can fix for around $150.00

My 1984 camaro turn signal lights dont blink but are lit. Also, when i turn my lights on, my tachometer, oil pressure and temperature gauge stop working.


The turn signals use a small relay for the flash, it's located in the interior fuse panel under the dash (small metal/plastic can)...it's the only thing in the fuse panel that's not a fuse.

They're a few dollars at Autozone and easy to replace.

The short/overload killing the dash gauges will be a bit harder to troubleshoot...Do the gauges die with the parking lights, or only after the switch is all the way out to headlights?

I have a 1990 Honda CRX Si. When i drive the car with the headlights on, my gauge cluster goes crazy. Both left and right signal turn on and the hi-beam light turns on. My gas gauge goes to the very top...


Your alternator may be on it's last leg. Start the car and while the car is running, remove the negative cable from the battery. If the car dies, the alternator is no longer working. If you have a volt meter, put the meter on the battery positive and negative. You should read 13.8 - 14.2. If it doesn't show this, and reads under that, your alternator is not charging enough to keep your accessories going.
