turn key on and speedo goes with fuel pump???

turn key on and speedo goes with fuel pump???

Postby chevyguybc [OP] » March 1st 2010, 2:12am

HI this is an interesting one and I havent started to clean connections everywhere as of yet, I am wondering if anybody else has seen this before..


the van has sat for a year or so, driving once in awhile, but it has not been moved in 6 or so months..

turn the key on, and the fuel pump kicks on( great) but the speedo rises as the pump whines, then goes back to zero ish after the pump stops.

Also I am getting a click from the starter, nothing else....

I am sure I need to clean all the grounds and replace all the bulbs, but any other ideas?

Is the battery fully charged? Next, like you said, clean ALL your connections.

I am thinking the battery is junk, I will have a new one going into it soon and will report back.
