It sounds as though you are having issues with the float sticking.When you shut it of and restart it you float probably becomes un stuck and it begins to give a reading.

How do you get the gauges on the dashboard to work


Well the first thing i can say is that these clusters do have a bad failure rate , they do go often ,but lets start with the basics first. check the fuses all of them, there is a cluster fuse and i think it is labeled gauges, start with that first.

If my gas gauge doesnt work can it just be a fuse


Doubt it.
The same fuse for the gauge would handle the rest of the cluster.
Probably the sending unit in the tank.

My gas gauge issues and other similar electrical


Though these systems may be unrelated, there is one universal possibility that I can think of. This sounds like a problem with the electrical grounds throughout the truck.

Clean and tighten the ground cable on the battery, and make sure that the ground wires are tightly connected to the frame and engine block. After that, make sure that the ground connections for the systems you described are in good shape, and tightly connected.

As far as the gas gauge level goes, it sounds to me like it could be the float ball system that is inside of the gas tank, which is connected to the fuel pump.I dont think your guage in the dash is broke, but i could be wrong. Sounds like something in the fuel pump area

Fairly common problem with GM vehicles. The sending unit in your tank has a small circuit board that an arm is attached to which moves up and down according to your fuel level. This circuit board and arm are not making good contact. Unfortunately the only good solution is to replace this part.

does it start up and die again real quick and can you keep it going with your foot on the gas. if it does and you can it is probably the idle air control valve or the throttle position sensor. if it doesn't and it just turns over try the ignition control module. my 94 park ave did something similar but it shut down and wouldn't start back period and then i cleaned the chip on the key and it fired right up.

The Sending Unit is Inside the Fuel Tank at the End of the Intake Line. You will have to Drop the Tank and Change it. Your Guage should be just fine after the Repair
