possibly corrosion/oxidation where the wiring harness plugs into the printed circuit on the back of the seedometer/ gauge cluster.

Well thank you for your answer, I pulled the cluster and checked the connections, all are ok, I may try a junk yard cluster. Do you know of any other problems in the harness that would cause all gauges not to work.


hate to say it but they may run through the ecm/computer.with the cluster out did you examine the printed circuit very closely ?
