Unknown driver, flashing gages, lose of instrument panel


Check the ground connection at the battery and the other end where it connects to the engine or frame. If it connects to the frame check to see that the grounding strap fom the engine to the firewall is intact and well connected. Bad grounds can cause all sorts of strange problems with the electrical system. Hope this helps.
