I just restored my 1962 Chevy c10. Everything has gone great until I ran into the problem with the dash indicator lights not coming on. I have tested all the bulbs they are good, tested to see if they are all getting power and they are. The lights will only come on if I ground them individually. Can anyone tell me how the indicator lights are grounded all together? I see no wires that are disconnected or bare. Please help!!

ALL of the lights in the instrument cluster should ground out through the metal housing of the instrument cluster. If you can get them to work by grounding them individually, try making sure the socket is clean and the housing is clean if there is rust or corrosion (it might not even look dirty) then the sockets might not ground properly. Then make sure the instrument cluster housing is grounded properly.
