HX GTS Dash Wiring

Hi all , I have just bought a 1977 HX Ute with a GTS Dash fitted. With the headlight switch pulled on the headlights (high & low beam) work correctly. BUT the dash lights DO NOT work. eveything else in the dash works as it should. Also with either door open the interia light does NOT work. BUT if I were to touch the fuse box anywhere including the outside sides of it, all the dash lights & interia light suddenly work as they should. Could this be a bad earth if so WHERE ??? Cheers- Trent.

it could be a bad earth or a bad power contact at the fuse for the dash and interior light .. if you look under the dash you will see the earth wires attached some to the steering column and some to the fuse panel hold in screws maybe they are loose or wire is broken away from terminal...( they are usually black wires )..

the terminals that hold the fuses in often oxidize and rust up cause bad contact with the fuse.. sometimes enough not to make them work..

A lot of times the dash lights dont work is because when you turn the head light switch knob to dim or brighten the dash lights is worn if you wobble the knob so to make a better contact they work ...

Interior lights often dont work when you open the door because the switch in the door opening is not making/touching a good earth..
