I have a few problems going on with my instrument panel in my '93 SC that I just can't pin down. First, when I turn the key to on or start, the oil pressure light doesn't come on, which the manual says its supposed to. I took apart my dash and checked the light, its not burned out. My odometer recently stopped working, but the speedo still works. I've recently had some oddities with the oil pressure gauge registering very low, but then moving erratically. Finally, just today my tach stopped registering completely. Is all of this stuff related? Or do I just have an unhappy car? Where should I start looking?

My oil pressure gauge does the same thing.....

I changed the oil with 10w40 and now the check gauge light will come on when I first start up and it is cold.....

The gauge never registered very high ever since I owned her (13 years), anyway......

I am looking into the problem being electrical... :confused:

My tach would quit working some times, but it would work if i tapped on the gauge cluster, so again I think it is an electrical problem.....
