Re: headlights on - gas gauge = empty
I wanted to throw out thanks and kudos to Harley, Steve and my man JimM (and all others). The advice they gave about the bad ground on the dash cluster was 100% correct. I had to replace my ignition switch tonight, so I finally go around to properly grounding the dash. I took out one of the cluster 1/4 drive screws (on the back of the fuel gauge) and grounded it to the lower framework of the dash. Viola' my fuel gauge remains constant with lights on or off. Before when I turned the lights on the fuel gauge would drop to empty or below, the turn signal (dash) lights (both) would stay on dimly, and the dash lights would not work. All of that is in the past!
