Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

You may have multiple problems going on at the same time, the issue may be with bus communication or an internal failure in the instrument cluster.

Are the coolant temperature light and fuel gauge the only thing that you have trouble with or are you losing any other gauges, or seeing any other warning lights?

Did the problem start after any work was done, an accident, jump start, etc?
