    Hello folks I got some questions.

    1971 Dart Swinger

    My gauge lights wont work, I checked the fuse marked INST No power to it regardless of the headlight switch position. I can't find any wire behind the dash that goes hot when I turn on the lights. The head lights do work.

    What wire is the sender from the fuel tank?

    Where do I hook the signal wire on the tach? Coil? Distributor?

    Under the dash here's what I have

    Left side dash plug wire colors.

    Purple
    Blue
    Black
    Green
    Orange

    Right side dash plug wire colors.

    Gray
    Orange
    Brown
    Blue With White stripe
    Red

    Just by trial and error I ended up hooking up the wires off the old amp (gauge?).



    Any ideas would be a huge help. I searched the forum but could not find any specif posts on the hot wire for the gauge lights.

    Thanks for looking.
