dashboard not functioning on 1992 Ford Escort

About 6 months ago the speedometer stopped regestering at 99,623 miles. Two days ago the gas gauge stopped regestering. The "check engine" starting coming on now and then.

There may or may not be a correlation between the engine light and the lack of dash operation (speedometer and fuel gauge).

However, a first hand test can easily be done to see what is going on with your vehicle. Obtain the services of a local qualified tech for help.
