"Ben, your not the first one to have this
happen to them."
Thank god! Not that I hope for the misfortune of others. But this is so odd!
"This just happened in my
G20. Same exact thing."
I just had a G20 engine swapped in to my Sentra. Odd, very odd.
"I took out the guage panel and my dash
to find out exactly what was wrong and
where that annoying tick was comming from.
I heard it coming from the exact same thing."
I did not have to remove so much to get to my noise, just the side kick
" When I leaned in closer to make sure that
that was the source, my instrument cluster
fell off the steering column that it was
balancing on and the important eletrical
parts of the cluster (tach, temp, gas,
warning lights) just died. But since then
the ticking has stopped completely but the
battery light is now on constantly (and
sometimes the emergancy brake light) when
the car is running (not while the car is
off with the key in the on position)."
Same damn thing mine is doing. It only happens when the car is running.
Seems like you've gotten rid of the buzzing/ticking but at the cost of your
tach ect. It's probably due to one of those connections then?
" I have checked the battery connections
and voltage, the alternator connections
and voltage and everything has checked out
normal (not to mention if it was the
alternator my car would have died on my
by now and it hasn't even made the
slightest hint of that happening)."
" I have also checked the fuse, so I know
it's not that.
So what I have concluded is that
some wire(s) have busted and need to
be replaced. "
" But I won't know this
for sure until I complete the daunting
task of checking voltage output and
continuity of every section of wire
of each wire going to the cluster. I
plan on doing it this next weekend. So
if you don't know by then I should be
able to shed some real light on the
subject by the 14th."
Good lord, if you solve this I'll give you some jujubees. I just don't have
" So as long as you
know your gas mileage and remember when
to shift by how fast your going you
should be okay to drive. "
My intruments are still working. I'll take that as a blessing I guess.
