try disconnect battery for a few minutes. be sure to coat both terminals with petroleum jelly before hook up.
Check for blown fuse.
Already did...none were blown....thanks though
Does it start and run normal , but just no guage function?
runs great, gauges frozen and no brake lights, manuel says theres a fusible link but I cant locate it
