Q: Tachometer and temp guage

asked by on

I used the 10 pin and negative pin to set my idle. Now my tachometer and temperature gauge doesn't work. I did see a small spark when I put the jumper pin in. I think I checked my fuses correctly but maybe I have overlooked one. Can you please tell me what the problem might be. P.S. my gauges did work before I did this. And of course they are not digital. Thank you
