Hi! I have a 72 chevy c20. My gauges are not working at all just the lights come of but not gas gauge,oil gauge etc.. nothing but light work only. Any idea of what might be the problem? Thanks.

If none of them work, go back to the very basics which is testing for POWER and GROUND.

People fear change because it threatens what they know, or what they claim to know.

The dash cluster is backed by a flexible mylar printed circuit board. The underdash harness plugs into it. You may want to unplug the connector, spray some contact cleaner on the connector, then plug back in and test. On my 72 C10 the amp gauge would not work. After checking the wiring and fuses, this is what fixed it.
