Check the charging system. Sounds like an alternator issue.

Where did you buy the alternator? Charge the battery and have them both tested.

Gauges stop working and all dash board lights come on

You don't say what the make model and year is, but generally the gauges get power from the same place the gas gauge does. Each gauge is grounded thru a sending unit or switch.
So my guess would be a problem inside the instrument cluster.

I was driving and my car suddenly died but i still had power now it wont turn over and my lights dim slightly

Based on your description, it sounds like you may have an engine siezure. Is there oil in the crankcase? Was the temperature gauge running high before it stopped? Did the engine seem to be loosing power or any instrument lights come on before it stopped?

My 2005 dodge diesel will die and then start right back up. The Spedometer and RPM's will both drop to ''0'' and then it will start and all goes back to normal. No engine lights come on. I need help.

Hmmm, this is very strange. I have two articles that I have read that come to mind that I believe will help.

It sounds like this happens all of a sudden when driving given that the speedometer and RPM go down, you say, and for this, please review the following article that addresses the possible causes of your engine's abrupt/sudden dying while driving at this link:

Also, since your gauges go down while driving, in addition to the probable causes mentioned in the article linked above, your problem may be a bad alternator according to this article on the sudden loss of a gauge reading while driving:

These articles should lead you to a solution.
