WIRING ISSUE

1976 Ford Maverick • 6 cylinder 2WD Manual •

I have a 76 Ford Maverick. My turn signals, heater blower, and fuel gauge have all stopped working (simultaneously). Does that point to a faulty wiring harness or relay?

Check all your fuses and fusible links first and then test the ignition switch for accessory power coming out.

Investigate solenoid for a loose or broken connector (maybe a dangling wire nearby it)on the Big Post Side that the Positive Battery cable is also bolted onto

These rigs were not really all that complicated back then.

Hope you find it quickly

If, Not

Get you a "Pertty Jeep", Like mine

You'll be happier come Christmas, and won't EVER want anything else from Santa!

Let us know how things work out with this dilemma ! (Ford vs: Jeep) I mean if you get yours fixed and its EZier than you thought

I crave replies---kinda all I get out of answering!

Go figure, I went to try what you guys suggested and the instruments all worked just fine.

Maybe you ought to get your buddy to sit in it and watch what's going on

While you SHAKE THE CRAP out of all of the wiring you can find!

This may let you repair it in the comfort of your own driveway.

OR

This may prevent you from getting hit by a TRUCK. In the MIDDLE OF TOWN. When you decide to try my recommendation later. With many on-lookers!

Just trying to look out for YOU and YOURS!
