1996 Volkswagen Jetta Questions

All my gauges just stopped working one day on my way home. They've alway gone off and I would just have to hit the dash and they would pop back on, but not this time. The dash lights still come on. Please, can someone help me figure out what is wrong. I'm scared to drive cause I can't...

One fluid did leak at the accident but coolant temp is good, i think it is the power steering because its hard to steer.

it started when I was driving and the alarm would go off and the only way to turn it off was to put key in drivers side door and turn.now this instrument problem.

i have a stick shift and when i change gears from 1 to 2 and so on and req. to accelerate fast it slips, could it be lack of fluid.

I absolutly love this car. If you put an R8 Audi & a 1996 veerow GLX in front of me, I would pick the jetta. I think that basically sums it up!
