This might be a simple fix, I'm not sure.
Tonight driving my truck, all my interior lights were working (4x4 panel, heater, door locks and windows) and on the cluster the shifter indicator light, odometer and all the warning lights work. But the gauges (speedometer, tach, fuel and water temp) do not light up.
Could it just be a fuse? Or what could it be?

My truck ('05 with 130k miles) did the same thing once, last year for about 1-1/2 hours on a long trip.

Then the gauge lamps flicked back on (with no action on my part) and it hasn't happened since.
(not helpful I know..)

Happened to me once in a Dodge Caravan on a long drive at night. Anger snuck up on me so I smacked the top of the dash. Lights came on and never happened again.
Not much help for your's but I felt better.

We'll this morning it was just working again, go figure

Damn Murpher's law!!



Was it raining out when the dic lights failed?

The most common problems with our trucks is poor grounds.
I would first suspect the driver side inner fender grounding block just behind the battery.
There's also another grounding block (plastic black box) on the opposite side located on the passenger inner fender.

Also good advice from others. Loose fuses and relays are common to.
