    No evidence of aftermarket work in that realm. Someone butchered the radio connector and bypassed the amp, but that shouldn't come back to the ignition switch.

    This cutoff is done at the starter solenoid? I assume that would be the place to test for a fault like this? Or maybe watching voltage on the terminals at the back of the fuel gauge?

    Yeah, nothing so far has looked crusty at any point in the system. Connectors, grounds, circuit boards, all clean as a whistle. I suppose all the leaves is some internal fault in the fuel gauge. And...

    In other news, I've completed the shop manual diagnostic test for erratic fuel level, and while I know more than when I started, I still can't say I've found a smoking gun.

    It's been awhile, but I've continued to plug away at the fuel gauge in my spare time. I have a spare digital fuel gauge, the original from my car, which I decided to take apart to see if any obvious...

    What did you do with the relays on the drivers side fender? I see you've got an aftermarket box behind the wiper fluid reservoir. Does everything now live in there, or did you put some stuff in the...
