I used to have a horse trailer and this is the brake control.  I know better than just going in and cutting wires, so can someone please tell me how to disconnect this. 

Thanks again for EVERYONE'S help.   :D

I have attached 2 pictures.

Picture #1 - my horn relay grounds here, I do not have anything to plug in to what looks like contacts.  Just for my information, what would this be used for.  Facing the dash it is to the far left of the cluster.

Picture #2 - Again, I have no extra connections hanging out there, but this connection is behind the cluster.  Any ideas what this is for?

Thanks for all the help.

Hello -

Refurbing interior and dash of my 1978 Chevy C10.  My original gauges were not very pretty anymore.  Saw that I could get overlays, but concerned about them peeling away with time and heat/cold.  Was at my now favorite bone yard and came across a pristine set of gauges.  I know you are always taking a chance, but they LOOKED so good!!!!  and so brought them home.  I installed them into the cluster backing after replacing the printed circuit panel and cleaning up the clips.  When I start and warm up my truck, they do not register.   :(     All instrument cluster lights work as well as cab/cargo lights.  They just are not registering.  I know there is a possible/probable problem with fuel sending unit so not concerned about that quiet yet.  Please help.  Pics attached showing original cluster with needle positions as well as fast, mid and low idle pics for newish gauges.  I am sure I am going to be told to buy new gauges, but is there anyway to test these first?  I am unfamiliar with proper way to test so please explain in laymans terms.  I know what a multi meter is and have a small one I can use.

In my last topic I shared the story of my bad thrust bearing.  I'm still searching for an answer.  Here's a possibility.  The drive shaft is too long.  Not by a lot but it barely fits in. Maybe 1/4 to 1/2 inch too long.  Is it possible that it would have put pressure on the converter and then on to the engine thrust bearing?
