  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

69 rally gauges not working - where do I start

Recommended Posts

So I got this great 69 custom S off of ebay... rebuilt motor/trans, suspension done, new radiator, new everything really..... guy was great at mechanical. Then there is the electrical.... 

He was not so great at that. The tach that was in it was the wrong one... and he had a replacement for me which I switched out and it works great. The rally gauge cluster however.... does not. Its the one that has the gauge for temp, oil, and fuel, with the gen light at the bottom. I pulled the entire dash apart and made sure the circuit board (new) was on there correctly and all tight, the ground points were all attached and tight, and even added a few ground wires just in case. The tach and the speedo work fine.... but the last cluster does not work at all. I see the oil pressure move a little but everything else pegs out and stays there (car off or on). 

 

I would like to bench test this but do not know how to do so. If anyone knows the proper way to test I am all ears. I have a meter and plenty of resistors or a dc variable voltage power supply I can use to test. 

I really like how this gauge looks and dont really want to get a repop... any advise is welcomed. Thanks. 

 

Looks like the picture attached.

I had the same thing with my oil pressure, pegged out. Thought it was the oil sending unit but no, I found a wire going thru the firewall grounded out.
