    Stock Radio CLUSTER F***

    I'm getting more and more concerned the ground got messed up in the process of all of this. All of the ground wires that I can find (3 of them 1 from the radio) are all connected. Any advice on re-grounding it them? My analog clock is still lit and working, but I don't have lights for my heat/ac controls. I am concerned about pulling the cluster and causing more issues.

    Yeah, I have tried the cassette deck. Still no sound. Cassette deck itself seems to be working. The speakers click once when the radio turns on and the sound is turned up. Dead dash lights (& PS rear Tail light) - I have replaced fuse #'s 10,12, 19, 21, 22, 23 I did rotate the knob. I wish it was that easy! The speedo, tach, etc. all work, just no longer light up. Yes, I did have the battery disconnected.

    Replaced the HL switch. No luck. Anybody have any insight into wiring troubleshooting?

    DAMN! Something came up. I'm not going to make it.

    I borrowed a speaker to attempt to see if I could get some sound out of the radio w/out having to remove any panels. Now, when I turn on the radio I can hear a click from all of the speakers. No luck getting any sound to the speaker. Also, no luck with the lights in the dash. The voltage coming out was .023 at the most. I'm thinking I ended up with a trash radio and killed my dash lights in the process of trying to do the install.

    I’m an idiot. I was looking under the carpet on the DS side towards the tail lights in the quarter panel. It’s there. Yes, the rear speakers were working for sure with the old radio.

    I was trying not to pull on them too hard, but there wasn't much to work with. Are you thinking it got pulled from the back of the headlight switch? I have one odd plug, but nothing that looks like the plugs I have found when I search for the amp. There are a few loose wires back there, but nothing that matches the schematic. Yes, I do have the tweeters.

    Speedo, Tach, Fuel, Temp & Climate Control All of the warning lights are still functioning. I plan on checking the ground (it was a mess) tonight. Also, none of the wiring that would have been going back to the stock amp is back there, so it looks like I'll be sending wires out for that.

    I just picked up the amp. Hope to give that a shot tonight and see if I can get things working. Took the car for a spin last night my dash lights are no longer working. Unbelievable. From what I've read they are part of the same wiring cluster as the radio AAAAAAAAAAAND it isn't the fuse. Any ideas?

    I know, I've gotta quit. I'm trying to live my life a quarter mile at a time, but Jonny Tran keeps blowing up my NOS filled cars!

    I think so. As soon as I saw it I immediately thought of that movie! Hahahaha

    I found this screw on my floor last night! If I learned anything from The Fast and the Furious I can pretty much count on my diamond plate flooring to fall right out of the car.

    Crazy Find

    Clearly in need of some work, but didn't look too bad
