these guages share a resistor. if the the resistor goes bad, in this case, stops resisting, the voltage increases and makes both guages shoot up. replace the guage assembly and your problems will be over. (you have to remove the combination meter and take it apart to fix this, its not particularly easy and you can cause more damage than its worth if youre not experienced with this type of repair)

Answeryou can just add a resistor from radioshack don't really matter what kind but just install in line with the guage ain't working but you need to have x-perience to this

A wire going to the battery broke off, when it was reconnected the gauges and lights on the gauges start working again, however the speedometer and the tachometer did not operate.

Definitely take apart the gauges, check and make sure all cables are intact.

It could, you need to have the codes checked to know possible causes.

It defiantly can be relevant. Moisture may have damaged the gauges or the wiring. Have the leak fixed before repairing the gauges. Have you checked the fuses and all connections.
