been workin on my cousins 86 c10 (slamd86cherry on here). and all his gauges just stopped working all at the same time. what could it be? i know in some older fords they have a little battery looking deal behind the gauge cluster that controls the input to the gauges, (or something like that). would it be the same way with gm. :think:

this could be alot of things....what have you ruled out, and by all guage you mean the speedo too? cuase that truck has a mechanical speedo so theres no way anything electrical could stop that

speedo works, i meant all the others, fuel, volts, oil, temp. truck runs so i know its not a battery issue or alternator. checked wiring and all seems fine.

hmmmm all your gauges are electronic, so if all the wrings fine im not sure why they would be out, everything behind the dash looks good? i mean theres no corrosion or burn marks or anything. i know this seems a little rhetorical but all your fuses are fine arent they?

Check that wiring connector on the back side of the cluster. If it's like mine, there's a paper-like circuit that HAS to be in tact. Otherwise, you'll be looking for a donor. That connector and paper-like circuit HAVE to line up.

If your fuses are fine, there's a break between the fuse block and the cluster. Check the wiring.
