    hey people
    got 97 civic ex w/ b16a2 swap. The speedometer used to work fine, but recently it started not moving at all. When i start driving on a cold start, it will read it until i shift to 2nd, then it stops moving. The same story with my tachometer. Which fuse would it be? any way to find out w/o yanking each one or buying a helms book? not sure even where to get one.... oh yeah, the gas gauge doesn't work, either. on a topped off tank @ the pump, it will read 3/4 full on dash. after about 75 miles, it will read empty.Any help would be much appreciated. thanks

    I had a similar problem in my 96 dx. It turned out that some wires between the back of the engine bay and the fusebox had been a treat for some rodent. They were shorting out and blowing fuses left and right. If the problem persists after you change the fuse that may be another place to look.
