    Did they ever work? Did they suddenly stop working after a wheeling trip or a mod? Check all the connections under the hood and behind the dash.

    Doubt the gauges are fused, but can't hurt. Check fuses. Other than that, more than likely in the cluster or cluster connection. Corrosion on the back of the gauges (the post/nut) is one common problem, as is the printed circuit board contacts peeling.

    I have these guages from my truck. I don't need them, if you want to buy them, I'll sell them to you. They worked, (as in moved) when I took them out to make room for new mechanical aftermarket guages. PM me if you are interested.
