On my 1992 GMC JIMMY the lighting for the following digital gages stopped working at first a tap on the dash top would temperarily turn back on but now they wont comne back on.Is it a bulb or am I looking...

Early GM digital gauge clusters are unreliable. 99.9% of the time there is a problem with the cluster itself. There are a few companies that rebuild these clusters. Search "1992 Jimmy digital cluster" on eBay or google, most company will help diagnose if you need a new cluster over the phone. They also have warrantees.

Check Gages light comes on 99 GMC Surban

one of the gauges must a fluxuated enough to have the computer turn the light on,I've seen mostly gas gauges fluxuate,but train your eye where the voltage is in normal mode because it will still look like the needle is up there but it may only be 11 volts instead of 13-14 volts running.

What is the check gauges light

CHECK GAGES light (1) indicates a potential engine failure(low oil pressure, low coolant, coolant overheating) has occurred.
· Check gages and shut down engine. Gages should read as follows: Oil pressure 5 to 10 psi (34 to 69 kPa) at idle; Water Temp gage below 230 degrees (110 C).
· Check engine oil level (Para 2-11) if OIL PRESS gage indicates low reading. Check coolant level (Para 2-11) if Water Temp gage indicates high reading. Notify Unit Maintenance if levels are low.

If CHECK ENGINE light (2) is on, check engine oil pressure gage (3) and water temperature gage (4). If both indicate normal, proceed with mission and then notify Unit Maintenance. If either one does not indicate normal, stop engine immediately and notify Unit Maintenance

Lights started flickering battery light came on Dash lights and gages went crazy now wont start

Like you said, battery may be flat. You can check that with a multimeter.

Next check the alternator. Faulty alternator leads to uncharged battery.
