RE: Dash Lighting

It's very easy to screw up the mylar backing circuit on the Mustang dash 
panel.  I did it, and had to repair it, when I was changing dash light 

Remove the gauge coverlay, and then the whole gauge pod.  Turn it over and 
look at the back of it behind the turbo gauge.  You'll prolly find a broken 
or burnt trace on the circuit.  You can repair it, if you're GOOD with a 
soldering iron.

Alternatively you can buy a new one from Ford.  When the voltage regulator 
goes bad, it needs to be replaced because it's attached permanently to this 
circuit, so the dealer may even have it in stock.  Dunno what it costs.
