any tests I can do to figure out if its the gauges or wires or sending units that are faulty … oil / gas gauges worked intermittently at first and now not at all thanks john

Could be an instrument cluster ground, broken pin or pins on the plug on the back of the circuit board, a faulty voltage regulator on the instrument cluster. I would start by looking at the instrument cluster since it sounds like all your gauges stopped working.


Windows- they're what make a van worth owning!

yea its only fuel and oil , went out for cruise last night , oil worked , no fuel about an hour later oil stopped again, but yea will check pins and regulator its just strange, well I know the gauges work, was thinking wiring to those 2 gauges, somone told me to ground out the fuel plug at tank should go to full but wanted to confirm do not want to damage gauges thanks reed
