Question about Cars & Trucks
Depends on what the vehicle is. On older cars this was the case but these days they operate through the electronic circuitry. Don't ask me how because that is my limit on the subject. Col

You need to pull the dash and check the guages look for any burning or melting. You may just need to replace the pannel in your dash, pretty easy work. If not start checking the wires and cables that come out of your faulty guages.

it is more than likely the voltage regulator for the dash. this is a common problem for these vehicles. it is located on the back of the dash cluster, its a silver box with 3 wires coming out of it. it converts the voltage from 12v to the required voltage for the gauges to not fry your cluster board (6-7 volts). its an easy fix you just need to hit a junkyard or dealership. also you can try the relay for this which is located at the fuse panel in the vehicle, there are 3 blue or brown relays at the top of the panel it is the 2nd one on the left. just swap it with the ign relay and see if that fixes it. also you can try cleaning corrosion off of the wires to the regulator. fyi the relays are a pain to get out there is a tab on the top of them that you have to depress just look at the relay box under hood this should give you a good idea of removal.
