Suggest that it is a bad ground.
Your instrument dash is made of plastic. There is a large plastic strip on the backside of it, that contains Thin, Very, small copper strips. These copper strips conduct electricity to the gauges, and also a ground source.

There is a flat cable, or wire, (Or more than one), that connects from that plastic strip, to the metal body of your Jeep. This is the ground source to that plastic strip. If it has a loose connection, (loose bolt), corrosion, or rust at the connection to the body, or is broken, you will have lost your instrument panel's ground.

Also there should be 2 flat braided cables leading from the firewall, (Hood open. Under the windshield), to the engine. These need to be connected, and there should be 2 of them, not 1.

None of my gauges are working ion my dash


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.

1982 chey van , none of the dash gauges work , have changed out gas tank sending unit , brown wire looks good , fus looks good


If none of the gauges work, there is a power problem.
The gas tank sender grounds the fuel gauge and the temp sender on the engine block grounds the temp gauge.
Could be a wiring harness issue or a problem with the printed circuit board too.
