Question about Cars & Trucks
Hello! There is a flexible flat connector that supplies the instrument panel...
They are well known to break at the point of the connection...If you can remove the instrument panel and inspect it with a bright light; Look for a solder break where the Orange wire (power feed) enters the panel...

have you got a dimmer switch on your model to dim the dash lights. if you have it may be faulty. link the cables together if the lights work the switch is faulty. if you have not got a dimmer switch
your printed circuit on the back of the dash may be faulty or the plug in the back of the dash is not pushed all the way in. hope this helps

SOURCE: gas gauge stuck under tab
I had the same problem. I carefully removed the dash panel around the dash board (it just snaps out), undid the dash board mounting screws, took out the dash board assembly, disconnected it, removed the plastic lens, and gently turned back the needle. To make sure it didn't happen again I drilled a tiny hole opposite the little post already there (next to the full side) and screwed a tiny screw into it. I then put it all back together and it has worked ever since. While I had it a part I also put a tiny screw on the temperature gauge side so it wouldn't have the same problem. Good luck.

My 2001 Altima's instrument gauges die out after high-speed driving for 40-50 miles. Engen also loses power. Everything is back to normal when the car cools down. It turned out the ingition relay was bad. I could duplicate the problem right away by removing the relay. Actually, it is very easy to find the relay which is located above the fuse panel. The ignition relay is the bottom left one among the five relays there. It costs only $20.
