    does your abs light come on as well? if so then you have one big problem, if not, it seems like you have two seperate problems. check your coolant system. check for coolant leaks, and get your wheel sensors checked at any midas.

My check gauges light is on, oil hands goes over to zero, moves up, light goes off, when it drops back to zero, gauge light comes back on.

Well the warning light is supposed to come on if any of the gauges display a dangerous condition, such as no oil pressure.
You may have a faulty sending unit for the gauge, or a wiring problem, or the engine may actually be loosing oil pressure when the gauge drops.
You could replace the sending unit as a test, or have someone check the oil pressure with a mechanical gauge.

While driving the temperature gauge goes down to zero at the same time the truck bucks (sputters) and sometimes shuts off, all the other gauges do not move. When standing at a traffic light, the temp....

You have a sensor that controls this. It is a temp sensor. It could be called something else, but it is a sensor that measures your engine temps. It would shut the vehicle off if it is not working properly.

Instrument panel dials all pegged to zero or max

ok let me help you get started
this isnt going to be easy we need to do a bunch of testing.
you will need a 12 volt test light.
remove the negitive battery cable and connect one side of your test light to the battery negitive and the other side to the battery cable . and with the key off.. so now if you have a short some where the light should be lit. now what we have to do is start to pull fuses untill the light goes out. and when you find the fuse that is causing your short and drain your battery . then we have to look into the section of the wiring and components.
let me know what you find
later paul

Gauges come back on....

electrical problem. take the truck to the dealer and have the computer checked / reprogrammed. unfortunately, your average mechanic cannot reprogram the computer. have you noticed any other problem that would point in the direction of an electrical problem (lights, radio, lighter, etc.)?
