If you reach away up under the dash to the hardest to reach connectors and push on them and wiggle them it will usually fix the problem.

Had one that I cleared the computer by disconnecting the battery for a while.Transmission also wouldn't shift on its own. reconnected the battery and gauges started working again along with the transmission.Still not sure why this worked? (bad computer?) I had the same problem, it was intermittent. If i gave the top of the dashboard a good whack it would come back on. Instrument cluster was the problem.

If the Gauges on your instrument panel have stopped working you may have had a voltage converter stop working. This device mounted to the rear of your instrument panel converts the voltage from your alternator to the voltage that your gauges run off of. You can check the fuses with a multimeter and see if both sides have voltage showing, if so then see about replacing the voltage converter.

If all of the gauges stopped working there is probably a blown fuse in the right side of the console in the car or out under the hood in that fuse box. If all of the fuses are good then there is likely a bad gauge cluster or a wiring problem.
