RE: Lights out

Similar thing happened to my old 1989 90 seedan. Took it to the
<grimace> dealer, who for the exorbitant sum of US$25 (no, Gumby, that
is not a mis-print, it is really twenty-five dollars) they found
corroded contacts on the BACK of the fuse panel, and even cleaned them!
All was better. The symptoms I had were all the instruments in the pod
didn't indicate anything, but the ones down by the ashtray did, plus all
the instrument lights, both in the pod and by the ashtray, worked fine.
Kind of strange, lighted instruments all on the zero pegs. No speedo, no
odo, no gas gauge, but I *did* have a gas can in the trunk for when I
ran out of gas, which with no way of telling how far I had gone nor how
much gas was in the tank, ended up happening about once a week. HTH.
