Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I will be driving on and all of a sudden all of the gauges will just go to zero.  It's as if I were turning the car off.  Then a split second later, they are back up again.

Sounds like you have a broken wire or loose connection. a broken wire may make contact for awhile and then a small bump or something will break the connection and vibration will make contact again. Could be internal in the wire loom! Probably going to be very hard to trouble shoot. I would start at the fuse box and work toward instrument panel.
