The instuments in the dash started going crazy, the tach gauge is stuck, what is the problem?

Stay out of the Burmuda triangle. :) (It's getting late 5:AM) check for a bad ground on the instrument cluster in the dash. Good luck. Jeff M.

Radio cuts off n gauges go crazy on dash,then return to normal, help?

You have a bad ground. Not really sure of your vehicle, but most ground points are under the side kick panels to the left and right of the front seats.

Tall instruments jump all over,for example ill be stopped at a red light speed will show 70 miles an hour, gas will show empty, temp will be pegged out,one minute later every thing is!!!!

Unsure what you mean by Tall instruments. Meaning digital gauges or the
standard needle gauges?
Being that this problem happens to more than one gauge at the same time
and returns to normal at the same time, tells me that it might be a loose
connection grounding the instrument panel, in which could be like a needle
in a haystack to find.
One other possible way, is to check ALL fuses related to the instrument
panel for looseness, not blown, since your gauges work sometimes and
sometimes not. Hope this helps.

My oil pressure gauge will drop to 0 and then return to normal when driving.

bad power input wire or sensor to gauge wire.grounds usually make them peg the needle to the right i.e. to much pressure

I've got a 1991 BMW 525i which has done 253,000 km. It's been a good car but, the instrument panel on the dashboard has gone silly over the past couple of weeks. When I first start the car in the morning,...

this is just a rough guess, but i think it would be the battery or the alternator. Some part store have testers that they will check both for free.

Speedo and tach peg out when your driving down the hiway and the gas gauge goes to E. then it all returns to normal. I like my 2000 windstar if it was fixed. any ideas?

i did a little research and couldnt find much. it is possible that your gauges have some huge problems and that is prob the most likely. i would suggest taking the car to your dealer to have it repaired/replaced. very odd problem. more info would be awesome. what speed? only while accelerating? ect...

2002 Lincoln LS electrical systems down- won't start

Removed CD player for jammed CD. Reinstalled but car ignition and most electrical sytems won't operate although fuses appear OK. Don't know if it is related to the anti-theft system.When ignition is turned on, both tach and speedometer needles peg out and return to zero but no type of ignition
