Stupid cars
    #4485284 - 08/02/05 02:36 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

I changed my battery yesterday, and I must have done something wrong, b/c the car starts but the instrument gauge doesn't. It sure would be nice to figure out how fast I'm driving.

Hahah, speedometers are for suckers. Mine hasn't worked for at least 2 years. Sometimes I'm doing 0 kph and the next second I'm doing 140 kph. My dash lights never come on anymore either.

I have no idea what I did. My lights work, though, so that is good. I'll probably just go to an Autozone or something and ask them what's wrong with it.

check the fuses. fuses love to pop when you hook and unhook battery cables.

Good fuse


Bad fuse.

Notice the connection is broken in second image.

Ahh, ok.

There should be a legend showing what all the fuses do, correct?

Usually on the inside of the fusebox cover.

Ok, that worked. What is odd was that the fuse wasn't even blown. I took it out, put it back in, turned on my car, and it works fine now.

That's kinda odd.

Not very odd. Especially if the suspension is past its prime, or the
motor idles roughly, or if you just like rough roads, those kinds of things can
jiggle themselves loose.
