So anyway... 2 weeks ago I gutted the interior of my car and installed almost all new interior components with the exception of the upholstry, headliner and dash pad.

Fun right? Well ever since I had the darn instrument cluster apart and put back together, none of the instrument guage lights worked at night with the headlights on. I didn't realize that until I started driving home from an outing - after it was dark out! /forums/images/icons/frown.gif Anway, after having the stupid guage cluster on and off 3 times to try to figure out what I did wrong when installing it, I decided to pull out the fuse (that looked perfectly fine) and found that the dumb thing was blown. I checked it with a flashlight before and it looked fine! Man!!!

Moral of the story? Check the simple things first...

It applies to more than just old cars... more likely than not, when something goes wrong, it's a simple thing. Kind of a nice thought, really.

Yup, that's the KISS rule. Keep It Simple Stupid I just wish I would remember to follow it everytime.

Funny,
My dash lights went out coming back from Lombard Sat. Maybe I should check the fuse.....

Mine work but they sure are dim compared with what we have gotten used to in late-model vehicles... (sorry little rant)
