Speed gauges shutting off

(1993 BMW 325i)
so, recently i removed my stereo for a while. and ever since then. my speedometer/RPM/temperature/and fuel gauge all at once, shut off while the car is running, and then they will turn back on seconds later. sometimes it went 2 - 3 minutes before it came back on. i have gotten a new stereo which i installed. and it still does it.

I had the same problem. It seemed to get worse when it was hot outside. I ended up buying a used instrument cluster and changed it out. It seems to be working fine now.

When you removed you stereo you likely caused this problem. Check the wiring real good, it's possible you disconnected or cut a wire?

okay, now they dont work at all. the gauge for how much gas i have, the engine temp, the speedometer and RPM, and the mileage meter are all not working, i looked at the fuses and they look fine. though im not sure exactly which fuse is the one for these gauges. please help me. i cant afford a mechanic right now.
