Hi and welcome back to JA. I am Buddy, and i will try and help you out.

 

What is the last 6 of your truck vin#.

Is the guages the only thing on dash that is not working?

Did this happen all at once, or has it been acting up before?

 

Thanks
Buddy

F90744 Guages on dash only thing that doesn't work. They went out all at once

Thanks for the info.

 

When just the gauges go inop like that, that normally means your entire instrument cluster is bad. If it was just 1 or 2 gauges inop, it could be a gauge or a wiring issue. I am also attaching a troubleshooting guide and another diagram that shows which pins to check for voltage and grounds. I hope this helps you out. If you have anymore questions, just ask.

 

Thanks
Buddy

Thanks for the reply.

 

Here is a couple different diagrams. 2 of them show fuse location in the fuse panel. The other is a wiring diagram of the dash.It might not help you, but it might. It took me several years before i could read one of those harnesses. I hope this helps you out. If you have anymore questions, just ask.

 

Thanks
