2000 GMC Sonoma 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 81000 miles
It all started with a dead battery, I then replaced the battery and followed by the alternator. This stopped the dead battery for a day then it needed to be jumped everytime it was started. Thats when schucks told me I had a battery draw. After pulling fuses I found out that the instrument cluster was pulling.8 amps plugged in and.1 (normal) unplugged from the gauges. I then bought a used instrument cluster from the junk yard and installed it. The new instrument cluster was fine although my stereo stopped working. After driving the truck for a couple of days I thought id try to plug my stereo back in this is when the backlights on the instrument cluster stopped working. I then took the new instrument cluster back because I thought it was shorted out, I got a new one and found out there wasnt a short because the new instrument cluster's backlights weren't working either. Then I looked at the fuses and found that the RDO IGN fuse was blown. After replacing that fuse my radio nor the backlights on the instrument cluster still will not work. Thats where im at right now, any help is greatly appreciated. Thanx.
have the same problem?
