Yeah, I think that's what Ford used on our dome lamp wiring for the door switches... but maybe I should just go away again. I usually don't know what I'm talking about. :-huh

Good job! :-drink

It sure sounds like there's an internal short in the light switch between the post for power from the CB and the post for the rear lamps.

This is going to sound crazy, but try pulling on and...

Ah, I see what you mean.



My gauge doesn't "flop all over the place", so does that mean the float is not filling with gas?

I'll be taking the sending unit out for testing.

Thanks for the...

Thanks for the reply Bill. I read your comments about the leaking float in a couple of other threads after I did an Advanced Search. And I don't doubt that's what's wrong with mine, but I don't...

Thanks. I was looking here at the Advanced Search and found Bill's (ND) repeated suggestion about the leaking floats. I would never have suspected that, as it seems a gas-logged float would never...

65 F250 gas gauge reads 3/4 when tank is full.

This has been the situation since I got the truck in September. I'm refilling the tank, which I assume is 19.5 gallons, when it is between 1/4 and empty. I have between 4 and 6 gallons left at that...

Thanks . I was hoping that's where the emergency flasher was located. I found the t/s flasher hanging loose under the dash near the wiring rat's nest.

I'll send you a PM. I'm sure I'll need more...

Thanks. Nice to know all my wiring diagrams are wrong. :-huh

Off on another tangent... sort of

I'm trying to figure out my wiring problems. In checking the fuse panel where there's no power to the 2A fuse for the instrument panel lights, I wanted to check the wire for that circuit on the light...
