If the gages in a 2000 Mercury Cougar at not working, it is likely that a fuse is blown. While the chance is slim, there could also be a wiring harness malfunction.

Inter mitten dash gauges on a 2000 Nissan Frontier?

I was having this problem, gauges out, lights still working. Found I could get the gauges back by flicking the trip odometer reset. Went into the instrument cluster and found 2 fuses next to trip reset. Larger cylinder shaped upper, small brown rectangular below it. Lower fuse was loose, gauges would come on and off as I moved it around. I wedged it in place with gauges working, and all is well. I think this fuse is replaceable, but pulled on it pretty good and it didn't want to come. Trip to dealer parts desk in order. gt
