I have a 69 TR6. I have been doing some work on my dash. Currently my courtesy light and running lights work, but no dash instruments or ignition now. The battery is fully charged. One of the four fuses was blown, and I replaced it. Are there any fuses anywhere else I have missed? I am totally baffled and very frustrated at this point. Any suggestions on how to proceed?

What happens when you turn the key?
The power runs thru the AMP meter , I think.
Did you touch it to ground??

Kevin-
Did you just "look" at the fuses or "meter" them. Sometimes the fuse can look OK, but it still might be shorted. Put a continuity meter on the fuses and let us know.

You're the man, Don! I read your post and took apart my glove box so I could get my hands in there. You were right -one of the wires to the amp meter was loose. When I pushed it back in everything worked. Thanks for your help, Don.

Thanks for your reply, Elliot. I must have been typing to Don when you posted.
