First of all, you need go to
http://www.iespell.com/ and download iespell and use it to spell check your post, then read your post back to yourself and see if it sounds right before hitting the submit button.


I'm confused as to what your question is all about.

Have you tried putting fuses in where they belong?

I think he's indicating that the starter can be energized without any fuses installed. Yes, it can be because the starter doesn't use a fuse.

OK, so the lights and the horn work without fuses
Which lights, head lights, tail lights, brake lights, turn signal lights, park lights interior lights ?
or all of the above?
Head lights do not have a fuse but I think the horn does.
We can probably help if we can communicate.

Where is Nokesville?

Horn (relay) gets power from under the hood..so no fuse is needed. You are just trying to see if I'm awake, Dean.

nokesville is near manassas va and it was the head lights and the horn its self i put a pole down the hole and made the neg touch the pos to make it go off but after every thing was in the dash light are not working but the oil light and high beam light and the one turn signal light works just not the cluster bulbs. I think my cluster harness thing that is made a plastic and copper is messed up because on spot is missing a pic of copper near the left turn signal areaand the plastic has seperated this is an ss dash that was out of a 71 and put in a 70 and yes the harness has been changed. hope that helped

ps it was that or the ground but i cleaned that before installation

Ok, I’ll try but you are just a little hard to read.

“…it was the head lights and the horn its self i put a pole down the hole and made the neg touch the pos to make it go off”

I think you are saying you inserted something inside the hole in the actuating cam below where the steering wheel goes. Yes, shorting that area in the “hole” to ground makes the horn sound.

“but after every thing was in the dash light are not working but the oil light and high beam light and the one turn signal light works just not the cluster bulbs.”

Did you check to see if the headlight switch knob isn’t turned off? It should not be rotated all the way to the side. Have you checked for voltage on the dash lamp fuse? This is the short fuse located bottom center in the fuse panel.

“I think my cluster harness thing that is made a plastic and copper is messed up because on spot is missing a pic of copper near the left turn signal areaand the plastic has seperated this is an ss dash that was out of a 71 and put in a 70 and yes the harness has been changed.”

Sounds like you are saying that you see a break on the flexible circuit on the back of the instrument cluster. If a copper trace is broken, the flex circuit or cluster needs to be removed to fix the trace.

Yes but if I think too much, my head starts to hurt. It would be nicer if you did add periods (.) in there. Makes it so much easier to read.

I'm pondering John wanting periods. Perhaps we should send him a box of Tampax. ;)

srubydo, here you can have these
......................................................
Seriously, slow down, do the best you can with spelling, it doesn't have to be perfect. Then read it back to yourself and see if it makes sense. I couldn't understand it when I read it. You're lucky John had the patience and time to try and decipher the problem. Myself and lot's of others are willing to help too. You have to help a little though and do the best you can when typing in your problem or question.

Good luck guy!
