I expect the is should do it for you.

There has been issues with the solder joints on the PIN connection to the gauge cluster. The issue being that over time thru vibration and such one of these solder joints will fail (happened on or 1999) you can repair this though. You will have to remove all of the trim from around the driver's side dash board, this will include the trim towards the center of the dash. Once these pieces are remove you'll need to remove the gauge panel (I believe (4) allen head screws) carefully bring the panel and release the wire clip from it. Looking at the back of the panel, where the plug was, carefully with plenty of light look for one of the pins to have a failed solder joint. It will be very faint however the failed joint will be a fine dark line around the pin. To correct use a small soldering iron and reheat this solder until it wants to flow, let it cool and reassemble.
I hope this may have helped,
Tom

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.

Intermittent electrical problems


If you have a relay/fuse panel on your driver's side, somewhere below your steering-wheel, try listening for the same sound when it would usually happen.

When I had this issue last, a bad fuse for my turn-signals the cause. It would just start clicking like normal, and then go triple speed at random.

For the gauges -With someone watching the gauges ( and car running ) try Gently shaking the wire/harnesses around your fuse/relay box and see if it fluctuates while you do it. If it does, you will need to isolate the wire, most likely the common connection in that system.

Intermittent starting problem and now it will not start.I cannot hear fuel pump. ive been told to replace main fuel relay. I replaced ignition switch a year ago.


Your starting problem may be a clogged filter or a bad fuel pump. You are not having problems with the engine cranking I assume.
