Celica is having problems

as most of you know i took all of my interior apart (in my fifth Gen) and repainted it all red and white, and now since its back together i am having problems, My Gauges dont work (Except Speedometer) my Dash lights dont work, and thats about it...i was wondering if anyone could answer me on white this is happening...Could it be fuses? because that is what im going to try first, if anyone has any idea please reply, because if its not fuses, then im going to take it all out again, and make sure i didnt forget any wiring or Break anything and such. Please reply ASAP, and any info will help.

And while it is out, i am thinking of Fiberglassing it all and repainting it some other color. Thanks

that might be it, did you disconnect your battery when you took the gauges out. You should always disconnect the battary when dealing with electrical, and engine work thumbsup

yeah, one of the grounds is off somewhere...gotta check all of your grounds...and make sure that when you play with electrical stuff you turn of the juice before playing with anything, and make sure everything is connected right before you turn everything back also might want to get a fuse checker at the autoparts store...what most likely happened is that you burnt a fuse or bent a pin putting everything back together
