Check your fuses, all of them, first. If they are good then yes, you probably need a new instrument cluster. The gauges are not serviceable individually. HTH. -Jim

I think the gauges are serviceable. There are stepper motors behind each gauge and are noted for going bad. Plenty of info on uutube to look at.
