1986 944 Dash Lights Revisited

Electrical

Vehicle Information: Model(924/944): many, such as 1985 944; Year: 1985; Engine (type, size, modifications): 2.5; Total Mileage: lots;

In a recent Q&A, you suggested that a lack of dash lights could be a loss of silver from the light guides. While I have seen this, if it is very dark, some light will be seen in the pod. I found that changing bulbs did not help, they would not light. It was an open in the flexi printed circuit somewhere. That pod is now a spare.Another problem that was hard to find was an occasional stall in one of my 1985 944s. A previous owner had apparently overloaded the coil wire. Where it goes through the big nylon disconnect under the dash, the pin / socket lost its temper, and made only intermittent contact. I soldered the 2 wires together.
