Post Gauges quit working???

This Morning I started my car and my check engine light was on and the fuel, temperature and rpm gauges would not work. I restarted the car twice and they still won't work? What could cause this?

The fuse was fine. It has to be something else. Has anybody had this problem?

maybe a loose connection on the dashboard end of the wiring? if not that or blown fuse (which you already said is fine) idk...unless a wire got cut somwhere, but i don't think thats very likely.

those guages are all connected together you have to replace the cluster caus eyou can not just replace one thing at a time they are all hooked together in a sequence

mine quit like that and I took the panel off, cleaned off the ground and the connections, and it worked again. Other than that, you just have to start testing wires from the ECM. Probably ground related though if they all quit at once and the fuse is fine.
