SPEEDOMETER ELECTRICS.

1970 Volkswagen Beetle

Electrical problem
1970 Volkswagen Beetle 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 94,000 miles

I recently bought a new speedometer, after the stock one broke, for my 1970 VW bug from EIS (Econo International Supply) Parts and I cant seem to figure out how to get all of the electronics working again. I can get the backround lights and high beam light to work, but when I get those working my fuel gauge drops tp empty. And I cant seem to get the blinker light, battery light, or the oil light (in the speedometer) to. Light up.

Ontop of that, the people I bought it from had and alarm system and a cd player installed so there is a hell of a lot more wires. And I cant find a wire loom for it anywhere.

Make sure you check all the ground wires, even on the battery to frame
