    I was drilling for an ARB compressor and nicked 3 wires in a harness on driver wheel well in my '62. I repaired the wires. Checked the fuses and breakers and are okay. Fusible link okay. Even replaced healight relay and taillight relay. But still, no dash lights, taillights including brake lights, parking lights, dome light, pwr dr lks, heater fan. Do have headlights and gauges and truck runs fine.

    Anybody out there have any suggestions on pinpointing the problem? Thanks in advance.

    On my 76fj40, those are all on the same circuit. Last time this happened to me, the suspect fuse even passed continuity check on the voltmeter. Replaced it and it all came back. Find the circuit in the fuseblock and change it. After that it's all tracing wires with the voltmeter...-sigh-...
