Check every fuse under the hood-on drivers side near windshield. Even a blown cigar lighter fuse can cause the instrument cluster to go out. If every fuse is good, then it sounds like the cluster just took a dump.

Is there a fuse for gas gauge and speedometer for a 2002 gmc Sonoma


no, your fuel gauge is controlled by a fuel pump relay under your hood and if that doesn't fix it...it's the sending unit which is inside the fuel pump, inside your gas tank...speedometer is electronically controlled from your computer...if its not working it's your relay which can be found behind your speedometer...you would have to remove it from your dashboard to get to it.

Sounds like you have a broken wire. Check the wires under the fuse panel under the hood. Its a problem with Chrysler mini vans and it might be the same here.
