I'm super excited about this barn find I just bought for a decent deal!
It's an 1987 Fiero GT / 5 speed with 78K. The car was sitting for about 8 years, it didn't run because the fuel pump died from sitting so long I'm assuming. I replaced the fuel pump and it started right up! yay! It's pretty clean except for this horrible mice infestation it had...but that's another story.. lots of clean up but getting much better..
So the current issue is the odometer and trip odometer are both not working?
Both the Speedo and cruise control do work great.
When I got the car the trip odo was at 120.00 miles which I thought was some what odd to be so exact? I have since zeroed it however.
I can't seem to figure this one out... I've pressed the trip button a bunch of times while drive to no avail. I have noticed that the odometer has moved a little while driving..maybe a tenth here and there.
I've taken the gauge cluster out and checked out the odometer to see if I could find anything obvious. I've also cleaned the connector to the board and spun the odometer motor itself for a couple miles worth to see if the meter it self was just jammed or something. I've checked the gears, they look fine too.
PLEASEEEEEE any thoughts to what could be the issue? Is my board shot? Is the motor shot?
My gas gauge is also pinned past full so I can't tell when i'm empty or how many miles i've gone....
(I'll have to pull the tank AGAIN to see what's up with the float ground or something..when i swapped the pump the float looked ok and so did the ground.. idk about that one either..)
Thanks in advance for any help and guidance on this!
