You should invest the $25 in a repair manual from the auto parts store. It has wiring schematics in the back of the book. Get yourself a decent digital volt ohm meter and start tracing the wires for your oil gauge, or you could try changing out the oil sending unit on the motor. It may be bad and they're not that expensive. As for the gas gauge, it sounds like you have a sticking float in the tank. As far as I know they do not sell the float and the fuel pump separate from each other. I would just watch the miles per tank of gas on the trip meter, unless you absolutely have to have a gas gauge then it's time to change the whole pump assembly.
No help but my gauges stopped working at about the same time on my '98 Frontier. So far, the fuel, temp., speedometer, odometer and trip gauges don't work or some work at different times after starting the engine.
Had same problem with my 2000 dodge stratus 2.4 liter and transmission would not shift out of 1st gear. Solution was ignition fuse under the hood was blown, one side of fuse working, replaced 10 am fuse everything works, tach, speedometer, gas gauge and transmission started back to shifting.
This problem can be tricky to solve... one thing I have run across is that some Cabrios have a factory fault that lets water leak though the firewall onto the fusebox! Needless to say this will cause any number of electrical problems due to the inevitable corrosion. The problem is fixed by inspecting under the hood directly above the fusebox (where the computer is mounted) Look for signs of debris or moisture. I have successfully repaired these with a good cleaning and the application of an asphalt based waterproofing membrane (unfortunately this was too late in some cases and neccesitated fusebox replacement!) Hope this helps... ;-)
I have the same problem.. i installed a toggle switch for the fuse so at least I can reset it while driving.. its still a pain so Im thinking my next step will be to drill a hole through the plastic and put in a small metal post to stop the tach from going past 7
