Unhappy Dash lights and gauges 88 Sentra

I have an 1988 Nissan Sentra 2 door. My gas and temperature gauges do not work and my dash light just went out. I have searched for a fuse for the gauges to no avail. Help please.

There is a fuse in there for the gauges, you just have to get a 12volt continuity tester and check each fuse. Check the top row and to the right, it should say meter.

You must pay to play! Boost ain't cheap! {x2 B12 Sentras with CA18DET engines}.

The dash lights are probably a bad fuse. The temp/gas gauge problem is common on B12s. I have it too There is a transistor in gauge cluster that is prone to failing. I'm not sure where it is but you would just have to solder a new one in. OR you can just ignore it like I do. Just reset your trip odometer after every fillup and know how far you can go on a tank of gas. BTW the low fuel warning light will still work So you could just drive the car until the light comes on and then get gas quickly.

I had a '93 Sentra Classic (B12)
Mom's got an '03 Altima 2.5S
Dad had a '98 Sentra GXE
