Well there are a couple ways to do this. I just run a new wire to the frame or tub I also ran an 8 gauge wire from the negative on the battery to the firewall to see if that would help. My gauges are messed up too and a lot of times its the circuit board on the back of them. If you pull the gauges and lightly sand the contacts on the circuit board it should help.
