Check for problems in the TCM in the gear box as it controls the units you mentioned. Check for all connectors are tight.

SOURCE: 1991 Volvo 740GL Speedometer

I remove two panel underneath the steering column. The first panel is removed using a 10 mm socket. The second panel is removed using a torx socket (can't remember the size). Removing these two panels gives you room to get to the clip on speedomter. Looking at the speedometer, you should see two rectangular holes on each side of the speedometer cover. I use a awl to push in the clip (you could use a screwdriver). Looking underneath the dash, you should be able to see the clip you are pushing on with the awl. I take my 2nd awl and put it behind the clip. I get the left side to release. One the speedometer cover releases, you can see the speedometer. You will see the 4 torx screws (t20) and two smaller clips holding the speedometer. All that is left is the wiring. (I take a sharpie pen and mark one of my wire locations on the speedometer. I am not sure what it does. It is a single wire.)

Check the turn signals outside of the car while they are on. Usually when they blink quickly, it is an indication that a bulb has burned out.

I have a 2000 ford windstar that I tore the ignition out the theft light is on and wont start.can I change the steering column and the computer and get it to start without taking to dealer.

Not exactly.
If you replace the key lock and the sensor is functioning, you should be able to start the van.
The computer and instrument panel are in sync, so if you replace either component they have to be reset by a Ford dealer. The sensor in the key lock sends a signal to the instrument cluster, and if the signal is right, the cluster sends the signal to the computer which then activates the necessary circuits to start the engine. The key code has to match the cluster and the computer.

The gauge are not working?

Your Instrument Panel Cluster (IPC) is an integral part of your onboard computer network. Diagnosing and finding the cause of your instrument panel not functioning correctly MUST begin with a full scan of your entire computer network.

The speed and rpm meters quit working. Is this possibly a fuse? or maybe a sensor? or maybe a cable?

{: ) A cable is definitely not the problem because there is none. There is no particular fuse for both meters. In case the cluster fuses go bad, there will be other more indicators or gauges that won't be functioning aside from the two meters, and you can also observe that. To verify if the two gauges are inoperative or stuck, you will need service of diagnostic scan tool.
The speedometer and rpm meter are electrically integrated into the IPC (nstrument panel cluster)module. The IPC gather its information from other modules like the PCM or BCM and they communicate thru serial data lines, similar to a telephone network hooked up to only two wires.
For both meters, the IPC communicates with the PCM (Powertrain Control Module), which receives the signals coming from the vehicle speed sensor (for the speedometer) and the engine speed sensor (for the rpm meter or tachometer).
The two sensors could not have failed at the same time, although not impossible. A module (PCM) or communication (wirings and connectors) failure is a more likely cause. Just make sure that all the fuses are checked good to rule out any missing power signal during the initial diagnosis.

I have a 1997 Chevy Suburban 1500 4X4. the transmission was rebuilt about 3kor 4k ago when I redid the engine. the truck has 183000 miles on it. The issue, when I started the truck this morning the gear...

It is very likely that rebuilding the transmission and/or engine has absolutely NOTHING to do with your current problem. The problems you are describing are electrical in nature. All of the things you are describing are controlled by the Instrument Panel Cluster (IPC) The speed is calculated by the IPC after receiving vehicle speed information from the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) and from the Electronic Brake Control Module (EBCM) The IPC also calculates engine RPM based on data received from the PCM. This information is transfered through the class 2 data communications circuits.
In short, your problem could be located in any of these modules or the circuits that network them together. You need to run a full scan of your onboard computer network to locate the cause of the problem.

If everything keeps going like that then it sounds like its a problem with the onboard computer. The computer controls all the guages and would explain why they all fail at the same time.
