I drive a 1991 560 SEL..fuel gauge..odometer..speedometer..indicator

This answer was rated:

I drive a 1991 560 SEL with approximately 130,000 miles. This morning, out of the blue, I realized my fuel gauge was not working, neither was my temperature gauge, my oil pressure gauge, my odometer or my speedometer. My "fuel economy" indicator was working.    What could be causing this? Could it be something as simple as fuse? Or are we talking major $$. I Just finished spending about $3,000 on fixing my A/C and my rear brakes, and my air pump needs replacing, too. Getting a new car is basically not possible. Thank you in advance for your help and guidance.
Hi rattlesnakechile, yes it most likely is a fuse. Replace fuse #6 in your fuse box under the hood and you should be fine.

By any chance, do you know what strength/color fuse I need? I always keep a few spares in my glove box for emergencies.
Yes, fuse #6 will be an 8 amp white fuse.
