I just installed my APC reverse indiglos yesterday and everything was good... they were working fine. Today they dont work. I jiggled them around and heard sparks and smells like burning. I take them out to find that the wire tab thing at the top it burnt in half... What happened? Is it the way i hooked them up? I wired them to the passenger side fuse box like i did the neons. Thats probly what went wrong but i dont know... Any help would be great. I know they arent gonna work anymore cus... their dead... ok...

hmmm thats your cig lighter fuse. Did you have anything plugged in there at the time the gauges blew?

Did you use those fuse extenders? (turns one fuse slot into two slots)

I have my gauges connected to the top right fuse, which makes it turn on whenever the head lights turn on.

Karrion, where did you get those fuse extenders and how much?

PunkKid, if the connection was burnt completely and you can't get electricity to the rest of the gauge face, you can solder the connection together. I had to do that w/ a set of indiglows. it was pretty easy.
