Do you

I was pushing the turn single relay up under the dash and something sparked. When I started the car again none of the gauges were working and the warning chime is going off any time it wants. I replaced the turn single relay but to no avail. It is an old car but I am on SSI Disability and cannot afford a new one so I am trying to find a solution myself. At the local parts place we were looking at the computer and all the gauges used the same 5 blade relay. Numbers on the relay are (12V 20/30A 0 332 204 150). I found a picture of it under Standard Relay but not where it is on the vehicle. It is just a shot in the dark attempt to get the gauges to work again.
Thanks for the quick response

Check fuse 7---15amp in fuse box. Not only check the fuse, use a voltage tester on the fuse circuit, should be hot with key on.

I have checked all the fuses but right now I have the battery out, relay in hand (the one that works)and it is into 90 degrees range creeping towards another 100 degree day. However I can't find its location to plug it in. Do you know where it goes?
Please help if you can, I will need to button it back up soon before it gets too hot.

Thanks
Mike

In okla, it's over a 100 every day. I just get the vehicle in the shade and get going. If I can stand it, anybody can. Once I get focused on something, I don't notice the heat, much. Yeah, I have to keep wiping sweat out my face, that's aggravating.

The turn signal flasher is in the diagram. You can't test anything with the battery out. I don't know how to help you?

I don't want to test, I just wanted to replace this relay. I only paid $10 in hopes it would work but I guess it won't if no one knows where it goes! I guess I will have to live with the noise and with out any of the gauges working : ((

Thanks anyway

If you have the battery out, how are the gages going to work?

There is no turn signal relay, it is a flasher. The diagram shows the location of turn signal flasher. Click on the diagram.

I would repalce the relay and put it all back togeather and see if it helped? By the way the fuse box you showed does not look like mine and I already replaced the fused and then the flasher to see if that was the problem since the sparks came from it. But it didn't and now I was trying the relay, or I was going to but I can't find its location. That is all I asked for----its location

Our database showed that flasher location. The database is all I have to go by. I'll look elsewhere.
