ok I have a 89 z24 with the digtal dash. I was riding along the other night and the cluster just goes out. I found a blown fuse. I replaced it and everything was ok until I turn my light back on and I heard a pop and the cluster goes out again. I check the fuse but it is ok. so now when I turn my head lights on I can not see the cluster. but if I turn the head lights off the cluster comes back on. So now at night I have to turn my lights off to see how fast im going. I have replaced the cluster but that was not it. anyone with the same problem or know what in the hell it is.

my gf had the same probelm with her 88 it was weird, she had to do the same thing you did and one day i dont know what happened but it seamed to jusdt fix itself, it may be faulty wiring somwhere. I dont know what she did to fix it.
i have been riding around for over a yr like this and it sucks.
who needs to know how fast their going??? :D 8)
Sounds like the switch is shorting out inside, try a different one.
