Year and Trim: 1989 SE
Hi Guys & Gals
Yesterday I went and bought me a 1989 SE!
About 5 owners before me here in Sweden since its registration in 1998. Don't how many in the US.
Car is in good condition mechanically and has no rust issues!
Some electronic gremlins are present but since I'm an AMC fan I'm no stranger to Gremlins… But if someone here perhaps can point me in the right directions to find a solution.
All my instruments apart from the speedo ant the water temperature gauge gives wrong readings. Tach shows double, Oil pressure pegs on max pressure on everything above idle, and the gas gauge show half a tank constantly.
There are some dead speakers as well, but that's hopefully easily resolved...

My guess is that the wrong style oil pressure sender was used. There is the kind for a pressure gauge and the kind for just a dummy light. You need a gauge style sender.

Not sure about the rest.

Welcome.

I'm assuming it's a USDM import and not a car built for Europe?

Show us some pics when you get a chance.
