None of my gages work on my dashboard I have a 1972 F 250 with a 360 engine
My gages stopped working one by one and then only worked intermittinly. I have take the instrument panel out and checked the circuit board and all the inline fuses as well as the fuses in the fuse block. They all checked out good. I cleaned everything and did a continuity test and it shows the circuit is good. All of my insturment panel lights and direcinals work. But none of my gages do. I have a wiring scchematic for the truck and checked all the lines for fuses etc and everything seems to be in good order.
Chiltons manual says when all the gages done't work it's a blown fuse. But I cant find one.

Can anyone give me any ideas what the problem might be. I also put a new low voltage regulator on the back ot the instrument panel which is used for the gages and this didn't do any good. I am sure it is something simple , but I can't find it.
By the way all the gages did not go out at once.

Are you sure you have a good ground?

I would also agree you have a ground issue. Make sure the motor is grounded to the frame and the dash has a good ground.
