Default Shorted Something. Gauges Don't Work.. Help

...
How about I just delete everything. Since members don't like information being added to the forums.
Peace out. The answer to problem was so unique and interesting it's a shame we have idiots on here. I found the answer myself and instead of considering the answer cool they flame you. AC Amplifier!

You need to be more patient with requests for "help." Most people have other things going on during the weekends and don't have to be online and especially on this site for a car that's "old."

Good luck with your project. At least you're going through the process of elimination and researching the issue.

First, you popped a fuse. Find out which one it is and replace it. Second, don't try to DIY stuff without knowing what you're doing. The TPMS connector on a 350Z is white and on the passenger's side, near the blower motor. Why are you even under the driver's side of the dash?

I hope you don't consider my advice to stop rooting around under the driver's side of your dash useless. Like I said... It's on the passenger's side.

I searched "350z tpms" on Youtube. First result is:


Which includes a link to here:

https://my350z.com/forum/brakes-and-...ring-tpms.html

'08's have the connector in the same spot as all other years.

I did read... I'm having trouble understanding why you would think the 07+ is different from the '03. The only change was the engine, which has nothing to do with the tpms. Otherwise, it's the same car. There have been no major changes until the 370Z came out. Either way... If I watched a video for an '03 that said is was on the pass side and a second video for some other model Nissan that says driver's side, I'm checking the passenger's side first.

how did that work out for ya?

Do you think this might be an exaggeration? What do you think people did before cars were air conditioned? We may have been hot but we just rolled the windows down. Kids today????????

Obviously it was an exaggeration. And I love how you assumed I was a kid. I'm just going to assume your a liberal who loves Hillary Clinton and whos parent's paid for your car.

Peace out. Not responding to these idiot remarks which just prove what I said earlier about the forums. Deleted all information regarding the problem. No place for a bad forum.
