Wiring..my instrument panel gauges not working.Today, I have no AC…

Customer Question
One Expert seems to think...
One Expert seems to think my truck hitch wiring is the problem for my instrument panel gauges not working.

Today, I have no AC and also my reverse lights do not work. Do you think this is linked to the hitch wiring too?

What is the estimate cost to fix the wiring in this truck?

Hi,

Can you unplug the hitch wiring at a connector to see if the problems go away?

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK
