Tach, clock won't work

On a 300TD - tach and clock don't work. Changed fuses, cleaned up contacts. Where should I look? Is there a terminal block under the dash panel somewhere?

It would help to know what year TD.. But just guessing... Clock.. only needs 12 volts from battery.. Pull pannel forward and check to see if any thing is loose.. Read the fuse panel.. If all the other things on that fuse work but not the clock and you see nothing loose hooking to the panel odds are its the clock..

Tac.. While checking behind the panel.. Be sure the tac is pluged in... if so and it does not work.. there is a relay.. If your TD is a 123 it will be on the passenger side.. Pull the cover under the glove compartment.. on the outside wall.. right at the screw that holds the dash on you will see a relay.. It will have a fuse on top.. be sure the fuse is good.. perhaps the relay is bad... If its a 124.. Odds are there is a cover behind the battery.. The relay should be behind the cover.. its still the one with the fuse on top..

TD in question is a 1984 Turbo diesel. When you say panel, I assume you mean panel under the dash. Or do you mean the fuse box. Will that come out from under the hood ? There seems to be a single small bolt holding it in?
Everything else on that fuse works. Someone has disconnected the vanity lights in the sun visors. Perhaps they pulled the clock and tach at the same time.
Will try all those fixes meanwhile. Thanks

Sorry... Different sides of the country... I did mean to say the insterment panel.. Check behind the tac to be sure some one did not unhook it to do some thing there and forgot to replug it...

The panel where the fuse is on top of the relay is the one below the glove compartment..

If the rest of the stuff on the fuse works.. Odds are its the clock..
