Turn Signals and Fuel Gauges

Well since I got immediate replys with my gas tank problem, next question would be my fuel gauge. It doesn't register at all. I seen where there is a test to check the fuel sender? I think that is it. Is there an easier way to do this without constantly putting it on the jacks and takeing it back down and all that stuff. I checked all the fuses and they are good. Also, the left rear turn signal does not work. I have checked all the wiring and it all looks good. I will probably be re-wiring the whole jeep but don't know the problem with this yet. The tail light works but the turn signal and brake light don't. The other side works fine though. Any ideas?

Re: Turn Signals and Fuel Gauges

Hit off-road dot coms webpage, they have a FANTASTIC writeup on troubleshooting CJ guages. Here's the URL:


I used this to trouble shoot the guages on my '74.

On the turnsignal, have you put a test light on the turn/brake circuit at the light and checked to see if you are getting voltage to there? Then chase the wire forward and check it at the mainloom. Just a process of elimination. Just finished rewiring the entire back end of my CJ and adding in proper trailer hookups. Not hard, just a pain to get your hands everywhere the wires run!
