I have lost my gauges, (speedometer/tachometer/oil pressure/eng. temp/ as well as the a/c and windshield wipers. The headlights still function, along with brake lights, but not the turn signals.

My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.My info is somewhat limited on your model here but I had seen no one else has responded and would like to see if I can help here.If at any time you feel that I cannot help with this please let me know.

If you have power to some of the fuses but not all of them this can be due to an issue internally in the fuse panel itself with damaged wiring or connection terminals needing replaced.I have seen some corrode internally and cause this fault and in some cases the fuse panel needs replaced.If this is or has been checked and found o.k. let me know so we can continue.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,your 5 star rating is appreciated.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.
