Hey there Harold and welcome to the forum, glad to have you join us! I'm not really sure what to tell you on this, either as you've already eliminated it being a gauge problem, but hopefully RamTech will chime in on this for you, but good luck! Great people and info here, so any help you need, just ask and I hope you enjoy the site! :)

Nope have not fixed it yet....Got a new set of gauges ...Took the dash out to check the wires,no problem there. Still nothing works but idiot lights and illumination lights. I checked to see if power was going to the back of the gauges, Some terminals had a weak light, Some were bright light from the tester, but they all had power. I would say that it had to be a ground wire, but where? well i guess no one comes on here anymore
