I'm Steve. I've got a 1984 300zx turbo and the fuel gauge light went out as well as a couple of small gauges under the radio control. I've replaced the digital dash power source but the gauges are still not lighting up. Can you give me any suggestions as to what may be the problem? Thanks

What Customers are Saying:

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
