Check the fuse in the ACC position. Also it has a single connector on the back side to the left as you look at it IIRC.

Are you using a test light to check for power getting to the gauge its self? Where does the power stop along the way? Check your fuses. My gauges were broken but I still got power to the gauge itself.

Since each gauge has a different +side input, your "all gauges dead" would point me towards a bad ground. If all connections are clean and tight I would suspect the printed circuit connector on the back of the gauges. You can get a better replacement for about $80 off eBay or a Forum Vendor. You can also hardwire the gauges. Search my Forum handle for some pics of how I did it and a color code schematic on the dash plug. It isnt that hard, just tedious as all electrical is.

Good luck!

I had the same problem no power to my ignition feed wires ( white with black) . so I cut them about 3 inches long and wired them to a hot from the fuse box (I used the heater 25amp on the fused side ) and they now work still no brake or reverse lights since its the same circuit. I think my problem may be in the steering colum . good luck!
