Gauge Wiring

Sunday, March 4th, 2012

The gauge wiring was just about wrapped up today after a couple of weeks of very little progress.  The tach, voltmeter, and fuel gauges all use the factoring wiring.  The factory plugs were removed and now incorporate quick-disconnect electrical terminals to plug into the aftermarket gauges.  The rest of the gauges were tapped from the door buzzer that was also removed.  All of the LED lighting was tapped from the cigarette lighter light wire that was removed as well.  Auto Meter recommends to use a 3AG fast acting glass fuse (1 amp on some and 4 amp on the others).  At my own risk, I opted to use a 1 amp and 3 amp blade style fuse in the two circuits in the terminal block.  All other features have been removed from these two circuits (computer, rear defrost delay, choke light).
