try to make sure that your connection isn't loose.. maybe ur wires just aren't connected/crimped correctly

either that or they're just too old haha

how did they go out?
all at the same time or one is on and one is off?

You might have the smae thing happen as me. My power transorfmer broke. So i just replaced that and now they are working. If you can get your hands on a new transformer or a friends....u can narrow it down to whats wrong....either gauges themselves or the tranformer.
then just either buy new once or buy a transformer.

Me too

I had some NR Automotive Regular Indiglos, and they crapped out. The blue crapped out first, and then the green. I was mad because I got overpriced on it anyway.

Anyway, I'm going with the reverse indiglos from www.procarparts.com - they look better anyway, and they are a lot cheaper.

Cost Difference

Why do the reverse cost more?

Here are my theories:
1.) They are more desirable. I personally think reverse indiglos are more attractive than regular indiglos.
2.) They have less volume of movement. It could be that they sell more regular indiglos, so to keep a good profit margin on the reverse indiglos, they have to raise above production cost more.
3.) They are harder to make. I would guess because there is more opaque material (regular indiglos only have opaque numbers) it could be that the stamping process is more difficult? not likely on this one, but... shrug.

Anyway,

R.J.

How come the reverse gauges are like $20 more than the other ones.
supply and demand


why does the spicy chicken combo cost 3.19 where the bbq bacon cheeseburger combo is 2.99 at carls jr, when both sandwiches are 99 cents on their own?

because more ppl order the spicy chicken combo


meh

indiglos can suck this:

okay, i started messing with the wires and when i started messing with a black one, they came back on, but they go off again after a while then i mess with it agian and they come back on, when they installed my tach they might of left it loose if they tapt in to it or something is what im thinking. To re-wire it would it cost alot??? i dont wanna take the dash apart on my own.
