Some gauges not working.

I've got a 1982 Z28 Camaro and for some reason the temperature, and oil pressure gauges have no power going to them. While all of the other guages work fine. I've put in a brand new temp sensor thinking maybe that was the problem but still no luck. None of the fuses are blown. Ne1 got any ideas? Also come to think of it, the car came stock with crossfire (no fire) injection. And so some of the wires are unhooked and just zip tied away from everything. I might go out and play with the wires tomarrow and see if thats the problem.. But if it isn't does anyone got any suggestions?

I checked the loose wiring harness's and don't believe any of them have anything to do with the gauges. Plus the temperature sensor on the block has a wire running from it. Pretty sure its brand new but does anyone know how i can test it? I've got the multimeter and 12v test light handy . Also does anyone know where the oil pressure sensor is located normally on a 3rd gen camaro?

Try pulling the guages out after that follow the wires. Are they grounded properly? Do you have a wiring diagram?

No.. Don't have a wireing diagram. Would probably be really helpfull but don't know where to look for one. And I did pull the guages out and tried to trace the wires at one time.. But it got to be so crammed that I lost them in a tangle of wires. By the way... Where should they be grounding off at?


Thanks,
Panther
