Look for a loose wire or bad ground at the dash area. You are loosing voltage to the clutch as well as the gages.

We figured that but can you be more specific? Could it be the key switch?
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 year ago.

Sure it can be keyswitch! But wiggling the wires is the best way to see where it is at!

Did you find the problem?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
We replaced the key switch and it's still doing the same thing. So we're trying the circuit breaker.
