I have a 1987 Nissan 300zx and the clock, rear view mirrors…

Customer Question
I have a 1987 Nissan...
I have a 1987 Nissan 300zx and the clock, rear view mirrors are not working. I tested and replaced the fuse 10 amp but thats not the issue. Maybe the relay but I popped out one and switched it with another one and still no power to the clock or mirrors. they are on the same circuit. The clock was looking a week ago...several months ago the security system was draining the battery and killing it so I disconnected under the passenger seat the security system/controller. any ideas on why these accessories are not working? how else to test...

I started by cleaning the connections under the hood on the relays and inline fuse box next to the battery. I have not cleaned the fuse box yet but was able to get the electrics working again (clock, rear view mirrors) and radio so went with it. finished my new car stereo installation. But the oil gauge is not working. I bought a new oil gauge sensor and will put that in when I do an oil change to see if it resolves that issue. any thoughts on the oil gauge?
