Sometimes those gauge needles, tach, and speedo needles can be touchy. The snap ins to the flimsy foil type electrical connectors can give no readings. Other times, it is the gauge itself. I have had both problems.
Also had a code 13 electrical short on the air bag light. Never could find any obvious place causing that, so it was time to take out the light and disconnect the airbag system.
The idiot lights are for the air bag and for the brake lights. I have led tail lights without resistors installed so I'm not concerned with that. I haven't investigated the airbag light yet. I suspect it has something to do with moving stuff around at some point in time.
As far as the tach and temp gauge goes, well those arent plugged in because it has megasquirt. I have a temp gauge on the A pillar. I need to build a circuit for the tach to work and just havent had the time or want. The car would move faster if I shifted right every time but I'll get to it this winter.
The tow truck comment is like my comment on his thread about the recycled photos. Just a poke in the ribs to let him know he doesnt drive his car enough and only reposts old photos. His comment about the tow truck is the same thing on he doesnt believe the car actually runs.
I'll get some more video today of the car running. Going to take it to a local meet and see how it does.
Also this was the last pull I had before a grounding strap broke on one of the plugs and took out a valve. All that damage has been fixed and the car is being assembled in preparation for the new computer I'll be ordering tomorrow.
