1972 Sweep dash Elcamino

Where is the light that aluminates the actual speedometer in a sweep dash? and how do I get to it? Thanks

Re: 1972 Sweep dash Elcamino

There are many lamps in the back of the speedometer and idiot light assembly. It'll be easier but perhaps not completely easy to reach them all if you remove the vinyl dash cover. I'd replace as many as you can get to and it might also help to disconnect the speedo cable.

Use delicate caution here around the thin plastic circuit board. It'll be very easy to damage if it is not already damaged.

Here is a link for you.

The thread starts with the idiot lights and progresses through repairing a common power problem with the rear sweep lighting and a couple other electrical things for the dash.
