    Ever since I installed my new overlays on my factory gauges, there's been some issues I've noticed. It was fine until I pulled the cluster one last time to fix the sticking rpm needle. Than the air bag light flashed on and off, and I have 4 beeps, 3 or 4 times upon start up than it goes away.. I noticed that now when the headlight knob is pulled all the way, dimming the gauges also dims the tail lights? The fawk happened?

    The beeping means you have a warning light out. The light dimmer sounds like you need to check the wiring to the head light switch. If it looks good replace the switch.

    Yeah its the airbag light. Eventually ill replace it, but it only beeps on start up so its not that annoying now. I'll check the headlight switch when I have a day off, I think the headlight switch is bad. Sometimes I can't make the gauges brighter or dimmer, than other times i can, really odd. And I can put my foglights on when no other lights are on? Gotta be something with that switch, because I switched the wires to be able to have the parklight/foglight thing last year, so thats not the issue.

    Doing some research.. Apparently these issues are common on 94-95s.. Looks like I'll be putting a new headlight switch and harness in soon. ****ing stone age cars lol

    I'll let you know. Its just so weird all of this at once. As long as everything works for now as needed ie, lights at night.. Should I put a new bulb in for the airbag light? Airbag doesn't show up at all now, even with the key turned to accessory.

    Yeah the headlight switch is shot.. Noticed that the knob is pushed all the way in, and my park lights are still on which would explain why I can throw the fogs on at the same time..

    It nearly 20 yrs old. Good news is the part isn't $200 like it would be on a new mustang.
