You have a high resistance ground return in this circuitry and the return current is using another return ground path to complete the circuit for that particular circuit and this is why all the weird operations of other equipment is happening because current is flowing thru these circuits also

Sounds like a short somewhere in the wiring harness going to the engine block or under the dash.
Does the problem happen if the engine is not running and you push on the gas pedal?

At a guess I would say that the main fuse is blown. Look for it either at the battery terminal or alternatively, in the fuse box. It will be somewhere in the region of around 50 amps.

disconnect the neg batt cable and bridge it with a test light, it should light up and dim after a few seconds, if it stays bright you have a short in one or more circuits, pull each fuse one at a time to see if you can locate which circuit, good luck

100A battery fuse blown?


They more than likely shorted out your 100a link fuse by grounding out your alt cable while replacing it. Sounds like they didn't disconnect the battery before hand. Your car has an idle program which it re-learns every time you lose power, or in your case, turn off the switch. You need to replace this fuse or your car will not charge.

i also had the same problem. Check your fuses. I could not find one blown but my dad checked and took the fuse out and put it back in and they work fine

Gas, spedometer, odometer guage not working


Sounds like you have a universal failure of your instrument panel circuits. The Speedo and odometers run off a cable that goes down into your tranny, not electrical.

Pull each fuse out one at a time, test each for continuity, clean the blades with an eraser and reseat, then go to the next one. Tighten all the ground cables you can find, starting from inside, then the firewall, engine block, battery, etc. This should fix it unless you have an open in the instrument circuit. A short will blow the fuse involved so that will be obvious. Just replace the blown fuse with the SAME VALUE- DO NOT USE A HIGHER AMP FUSE! If you have a blown fuse, hopefully you'll be lucky and it won't blow again.

I say check each fuse because sometimes instrument circuits are shared with others and not obvious which fuse is the one. And if one fuse is not making good contact, then others are likely to be on their way. If it is a short it will work momentarily until the fuse blows- thats why they're in there- to protect the circuit.

If you have a short you will have to track it. Take the blown fuse out and run your tests on your wires- most. Sometimes those little instrument lights get a bad connection- glazed contacts & sometimes they act as sub-fuses as well, so it can get complicated. This is my generic solution for most vehicles.
Good luck hope this helps.
