Question about 1994 Chrysler New Yorker
Everything else on the cars electrical system works. Runs great! But I have lost all the dash gauges. The 5 amp fuse in space 14 for "cruise mess cntr" is blown and the same for the two replacement fuses, this happens when key is turned on and the starter is NOT engaged. 53k on the mileage. I have inspected all wiring under the hood and can not find any that are damaged. What and where should I look now?? I would like to trace the wires but do not know where the go and the color codes. All dash lights work and all other electrical stuff works fine. The break light is on but very faint, if I apply the parking break then it goes on full but when released it is still faint also interior lights take much longer to fade off even when I am driving.
Hello lybolts3...You will need a digitial multimeter to help troubleshoot this problem. With this you can help determine the problem. No doubt you have more than 5 amps through the circuit, causeing the fuse to blow.Check the actual amperage and voltage at the fuse box, make sure it has a good ground... a bad ground will have the same effect as a short...If you have a good ground, 12 volts and bus voltage on the plus and minus
bus wires the cluster should work. both bus wires should be around 2.5 volts. If one of the bus wires is 2.2v the other should be 2.3v and so on. The back of the instrument cluster where the connectors attach is another place to check...clusters have been known to fail..a bad soder or corroded pin. Last but not least..the ignition switch and the BCM...the gauges get their info from the BCM and the switch powers it.
Good luck..i hope this helps..please rate me a fixya.
