Just bought an 81 with a list of minor problems to address:
One is that when I turn on headlights, dash doesnt light up. What should I check to get it working?
Also, when I use turn signals, there is no dash light indicating so and no audible clicking sound.
Any clue as to what to check for this?
Thanks!

Easy stuff first- check all the fuses, INST LTS, Turn Brake to start.

If it's past that, you're getting into bulbs, grounds, and switches.

What he said, if your fuses are fine then you should pull out your gauge cluster and inspect the circuit board for tears and wears. The car is 30 years old, could be worth replacing anyways :)

Sounds like two separate problems. The dash lights not coming on could be the headlight switch, check for power to the dash lites from the headlight switch, could also be a fuse , check the inst. lamp fuse. But check the fuse first, it's easier. :vomitbuddy:
