1980 Ford LTD V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 200000 miles
and eventually some explanation. Car has a power failure in dashboard, engine and brake dashboard lights (rectangular) connector (contacts positions 2 and 3) suffered a shortcircuit when the oil pressure sensor (apparently defective) was connected to chassis as to verify the corresponding dashboard light. Then the wire (from the oil sensor) overheated, and the copper contact at dashboard connector went fused. The oil sensor supposedly closes /sends the ground to the dashboard when signaling a low pressure, so what is wrong? Some wiring harness?
have the same problem?
