    Thanks again, but sorry no luck! Would the ignition switch cause the gauges not to work?

    I am afraid I will have to admit defeat... It'll towed to someone who can troubleshoot further than I without causing more issues... Thanks to all that have helped to contribute!

    All said and done, it was a simple fuse and pinched wire. Nothing makes you fee like a dumb ass like a pinched wire and bad fuse...

    Thanks for your help!

    Thanks, I am too. I was almost hoping it was something else so I didn't have to pay another set of eyes to figure it out. At lease I was on the right track he said and saved him the 20 steps I already did! Thanks again for all your help!

    Glad it was a easy fix. Besides automatic transmissions I look at electrical like it's voodoo.

    Never know exactly what the problem is and it takes serious time to track it down and fix.
