so the other day i took off my trunk and in the process must have messed up some wiring. I had to disconnect the wires that went to the trunk light and i'm guessing that's where i screwed up. once i reattached the trunk, and plugged the wires back in, my tach, cd player, and the on board computer don't work. i checked all the fuses just to be certain but it keeps coming back to the trunk light. HELP!!!! it sucks driving without knowing my rpms and not having any music!! ghead

i'm pretty sure theres a fuse for the instrument cluster, look in the red manual (if you have it) and there should be a diagram of the fuse layout and then you can find the gauge fuse and replace it. if you dont have the manual let me know and i'll look it up for you to see what fuse to replace.
