well all i can say is that my truck was perfectly fine untill i took everything apart to get it painted. i didnt really mess with anything under the hood, but i took my interior completely apart. including the dash. now im trying to put everything back together and something isnt right. my battery dies over night, my fuel gauge isnt working and the airbag light, low fuel light, check engine light, abs light, security and my right blinker lights are on on my gauge cluster and my enging doesnt seem to be running right.

its an 03 s10, 4.3

i dont have an alarm, but i do have an autolok shaved door kit with starter kill. i double checked everything and it seems to be fine.

i already checked all my fuses.

my dash is still out of the truck, but i plugged everything back in and it didnt help at all.

i really need help. i gotta address this before everything goes back together.

the dash is just an empty shell right now. i plugged everything electrical back in to see if that would fix the problem and nothing.. i dont get it. everything was fine before i took the shit apart. im lost.

i doubt it.. i didnt really mess with any of those. i dont think my shit would run at all if i cut the fuel pump ground.

i just TRIPPLE checked every little thing. i cant find anything wrong.. there has to be someone out there that can tell me why my gauges arent working. i know i cant figure it out. also, i tried swapping out the gauge cluster and that didnt help either.

that will happen if your grounds are not hooked up, mainly under hood grounds, trust me if one ground wire is not hokked up it can **** shit up.. ive had the problem before, make sure you have every sigle ground hooked up, make sure a good ground form the battery to the frame if hooked up, and then a good one from the frame to the body, and you shoudl be ok.
