Hi, im a total newbe and have a dodge charger from 1969.
i have just pulled out the dash (thnx to another article here!), so i can clean it up and also because i dont have instruments running (except speedometer), and i need to get the gauges up and running. Also i want to have the panel lights on.
Im wondering if i can turn on the electrics or even start the car when the cluster is out and disconnected ?...So i can test why the panel lightbulbs dont shine Smiley

Take the two leads for the amp guage and tape them securely together.  Make CERTAIN there is no exposed metal at the leads to short out and disconnect the battery while you are playing around with them.  Hook it back up after you get them together.
