Have a 1992 chevy 2500 half the cluster lights go out aswell the fuel pessure reads zero and the temp max reading. whent the lights are out or the dimmer is turned off the gauges work properly but as soon...


It sounds like a bad ground. Check the ground circuits to your dash lights as well as check out your tail lights to make sure they are working properly. (The tail lights run on the same circuit as the dash lights, although tey have a separate grounding point.) The gauges are most likely going goofy because the dash and/or tail lights are trying to pull ground through the gauges circuit.

The running tail lights and dash light dont work


Most likely you have a ground wire off that is connected to the tail lights check under the bed of your truck for a wire hanging or cut in two.

Dash lights and tail lights work when they want


the occasional not working leads me to believe it's loose wiring or a short in the wire somewhere

Tail lights and dash lights not working


there are a few fuses under the hood be sure to check fuses again at dash they could look good but not be and if one was blown it could have blown as soon as you turned them on again that would indicate a short. it could be the switch also if it is the pull type try pulling it slowly to see if they come on and turning it like to dim the dash lights. if that makes them come on you need a new switch sometimes it will work sometimes not
