Re: gauge's not working
There should be 2 connectors on the back of the cluster that you will have to check are still in place. Unhook battery then start taking off trim pieces until you can pull the cluster out enough to make sure the connectors are tightly snapped in.

There is a fuse for the cluster gauges. Ford stinks because if you don't have the manual, you can't find the fuse. I pull all the fuses and look at them. This tells you they are good and gets rid of any corrosion problems. After this you will have to find the fuse and check the wire from the fuse to the cluster. You will need wiring diagrams also.
Intermittent gauges usually mean a bad ground connection for the gauges. Things to check: look for multiple ground connections at one screw to chassis frame & tighten it; check large connector at rear of instrument cluster for good connection; replace gauges fuse - it can be cracked. If none of those work, than instrument cluster circuit board will probably have to be replaced - which means removing the cluster.
