Re: Electrical Gremlins
Diesel or gas? Does the van have a conversion? Well I'd start at the source by looking at the battery connections, test voltage on the lugs and compare to the spade then move towards the engine. If the battery or batteries is/are dead, its time to look for a short, bad connection or open point. Look for any breakers or fuses that blew. The fuse out you speak of could be a indicator where to look in both directions. When gauges go dead while the engine continues to run it might indicate an open/poor neutralconnection. The main power run from the alternator to the fuse block runs past some warm areas so you might look there. Test voltage at the main fuse block under the hood. My methods are fly by nite in nature. Maybe a real mechanic can step in here.
