Default Fuse #46

As I was driving to the grocery store today, I noticed the fuel and temp gauges going up and down. My first thought was......crap, I'm starting to have electrical issues. When I got home, I opened the hood and checked the fuses and looked for instrument cluster and it showed it had four (4) fuses: 23, 27,31 and 46.
Everyone of them looked fine except for #46, it had blown. It apparently uses a pretty high fuse: 25amps (yellow). So, I replaced it and the gauges started working again. Anyone ever experienced this?

I have had this problem a couple of times. About two years ago I had numerous fuses blowing on a daily basis. It just stopped after a while. But fuse #46 will also make you brake lights not light up when stopping.

Yes, I found that out........brake lights, temp and fuel gauges, no wonder it needed 20Amp fuse. I just replaced it with a 25Amp fuse.

It doesn't need park distance control, and hates decadence. It is musclepacked, yet lightly wound. It lets you feel the asphalt and get you going with the smallest touch of the pedal. It provokes, seduces, and demands to be driven hard. It looks, sounds, and smells like performance.

That's pretty standard. Most shops charge 50-60 bucks an hour with a minimum of 1hr. Figure troubleshooting, paperwork and whatnot. A dealership would've charged over a hundred an hour. I bet if you would have asked for an invoice, they would've been a little embarrassed since all they could put on it was "located blown fuse, removed and replaced fuse with new one. Parts-$0.25 Labor-$49.75" Yeah a nice mechanic would've done it for free, but people/business' gotta pay them bills
