have an 89 gt and recently had dash out.Ever since i put it back in the fuel gauge was stuck at 1/2 tank.Removed again(made sure needle was free) and now needle is reading past full and drops to 1/2 when car is off.Did i break something on back of cluster?Apparently it still is getting signal from sending unit.any help will be appreciated

why not follow along with some of the trouble shooting of the cluster in this article from another mustang magazine on this site..

i was looking around for images... let us know if that does not help...

and do you own a digital volt meter so you can probe the connectors between the printed circuit and the gauge connections????

more to come ...

Thanks.Great article.Think I have it traced to bad anti slosh module. Only one i can find local is from a 90 its the plug in style and mine is the bolt on.Is there anyway to connect the plug in one to the bolt on style? Read somewhere good tape? Or should i try to fix original? Fixin original should be simple once the bad resistor is found.I hear the big red one is the culprit most of the time.
