    All the gauges on the dash stopped working. They come on and off whenever they want to. How do I fix that problem?

    Under the dash would be my first spot to look. I would consider doing a wiggle test. With the power on, start wiggling wires and connections looking for when the lights/gauges go on or off. Also...There is usually a fuse that controls the gauges and lights but it would be unusual for a fuse to cause the lights to go off and on intermittently. Might be worth checking anyway in case nobody told the fuse it can't do that. :)

    Last one I helped with we found a melted section of wire from an accessory install. It was a rubbed wire which shorted out here and there as the vehicle bumped along down the road.

    No doubt it can be from something else but this is where I would start. Hope it helps.

    Good Luck!!
