HI....need some help...

I broke the circuit board where my generator light is and between my gas gauge and gen light. Now the gen light and gas gauge and
left blinker light on the dash dont work...
I wasnt sure if the gas gauge is controlled by the circuit board...I had the gauge cluster partially out and touched the gas needle and put it back to the original position...Will a new circuit board correct the problem or do I need a knew gauge also


Thanks for your help

Yes, the gas gage is connected by the circuit board. You can move the gas needle all you want but when the ignition switch is turned on it will read the tanks fuel level if everythings in working order.

These circuit boards can be repaired. If you are comfortable with a soldering iron and have some wire. Where the etch is broken peel back the plastic laminate that is covering it. Solder a small gauge jumper wire across the broken etch. Insulate the solder connections and tack down the laminate with some RTV.
