On my 06 the dash gauges have decided to stop working except for the fuel gauge. The car runs fine, though.
Any suggestions?

Others can comment but check battery voltage should be 13 + volts and battery ground to frame mount cable should be scraped of paint and install star washer.

Id like a dollar for every thread about gauges.....

But back on topic.... I assume you have key cycled the car? Ive had them freak out, but come back.

As mentioned above, confirm ground from the battery to the frame (under the battery) is clean and tight (disconnect, clean, reassemble with some dielectric grease). This is a notorious issue.

Speed Hut is having a Black Friday sale, 20% off. I just ordered a full set of gauges. I can't stand the factory gauges anymore!
Happy Thanksgiving.

Suggest a new battery if yours is 3+ years old, Red Top group 25 Optima, they’re a hit and miss after Johnson Controls (now Clarios) moved the factory to Mexico, my last one lasted 13 years, changed mine for same a couple of weeks ago (wasn’t experiencing any gauge issues, but 13+ years, it was time).

Agreed, I have enough things to worry about on my cars without adding gauges to the list…..my car had Speedhuts when I bought it

I installed my Speedhut full panel 5 years ago. No problems since, and I haven't ever thought I'd rather have the OE gauges. For $1100 or so, they are a screaming deal.

My favorite features are the custom color options and the shift lights.

Rich Brooks installed my Speedhuts, 8 years ago, and removed the fully functional OE gauges. They're put away, and I don't worry that my Speedhuts will fail. All good!!!
