S13 Electrical Issues

Recommended Posts

The problem started when I replaced my broken cluster with digital speedo with a working one.

First I noticed the radio stopped working, checked the fuse and it was blown so I replaced that and it'll be fine but the radio still would not come on. Every now and then the fuse will blow again.

 

The interior light also stopped working

Door open signal light is always on

When I turn the front interior light to the "on" position, the clock stops working and would come back on when I switch the light off (however the light does not come on)

When interior light gets switch "on" the "door open" light comes on brighter but interior light doesn't work

The battery gets drained overnight if I leave the terminal plugged in

 

Not quite sure where to start.

Anyone seen or had same/similar problem?

Any suggestions on what I should look at?

pour gasoline inside car, add a lit match.

 

I will be sure to recommend that to you next time you have an issue.

 

Also. Are you American?

Check the looms in the wheel arches, to see if wheels are rubbing through.

 

I recently had some stupid problems, including blowing my stereo fuse whenever I turned left... I had a few chewed up wires that would randomly come into contact with eachother.

What was the issue with your original cluster? Are you certain you got a replacement for your exact cluster? I think off the top of my head you had two connectors that go into the dash? I think they are the same plug type (well very similar so they could be forced into one another) so it might be possible that you have plugged them in the wrong holes??
