Electrical Gremlins - Instrument Lamps and Brake Lights
Just had my car transported from NM to VA as part of my move. Everything is just about in order, but I am working a small electrical issue (maybe issues):
Problem #1 - the brake lights no longer work. Tail lamps work just fine, both as turn signals and when I turn on the lights. They just don't get brighter when I push the brake pedal. Obviously, that could just be a bad switch, but since I am having Problem #2 as well, I was curious if anyone thought they could be related.
Problem #2 - none of the instrument illumination lights are coming on (instrument panel, console shifter, and heater; as far as I can tell from my wiring diagram, all of those get power from the same source). All the rest of the lights in the instrument panel work (blinkers, brake light, and the tach is working). All of the console gauges function just fine. There's just no illumination to any of hte instruments when I turn on the car's lights. I have checked all the fuses, and they all seem intact.
