well i was installing the reverse blue ac gauges i got and while i was setting them up, one of my friends took it upon himself to splice the wires to the cig lighter light for me except hes a fool and spliced all four of the wires in one splitter(dont ask i was shocked as well) two ground & two power and when i came outside with my new ac cluster i found out that my instrument gauges would not come on, not the ac not the spedometer nothing, everything else works and i checked all the fuses they all look fine please help!!!

When my guage lights quit one time it ended up that I blew a fuse. The one that I blew was actually one of the taillight fuses (not sure what that has to do with the speedo) anyway I replaced the fuse and all was well. So, in short check your fuse box for a blown fuse.

check fuses 2, 6, 7, 12, and 18. yep, i'm suspecting the tail light fuse like ruahighlander said, as funny as it sounds.

also check to make sure that the dimmer switch is plugged in. lights don't work if it's not plugged in. i had a little scare when i did the LED converison and changed the clock color. went to test it and nothing worked. then i plugged in the dimmer and ta-da!

it was the tailight fuse, thank you so much for the help i never would have checked that one, you guys rule. by the way can you take a number 74 led and just put it in a socket for example the behind the cluster could i just take out a bulb and put an led there or would something go wrong?
