Replaced the battery in my truck and the Temp and Fuel Gauges went limp.
Limp gauges can be remedied with a heathy dose of Viagra! 🤪
Will it run ? Check the small ground on the NEG. Cable. If you have a helper have them watch the gauges while you wiggle wires.Replaced the battery in my truck and the Temp and Fuel Gauges went limp.
OTE="oldeerslayer, post: 12280668, member: 270313"]Check continuity with an ohm meter between C1 (the blue connector) pin 59 and pin A6 at the instrument cluster. You'll need to extend the meters probes a few feet to reach that far. I usually clamp one probe onto a 10' piece of 20-22ga insulated wire and use the end of that as that probe.
That's how the fuel and temp gauges get their info (data).

Good place to start. You have a tester to pull codes? My 88 got it in its head to make the gas gauge go from e to f continually a couple days ago. Filled it up with fuel ,and it settled down.One time i bought a new battery and the post were backwards on my sierra. Taught me an expensive lesson that I will not soon forget. My 03 s10 does weird gauge stuff monthly. Usually self healing. hook a test light to POS + and check all you're neg- wires ,and the frame , body . can do it with a multi-meter as well.Update gas gauge started working when I drove it out of my driveway. Temp gauge was still limp.
I was doing trouble shooting and disconnected. When I connected the batter both gauges were limp. I started the truck and now the temp gauge is working.
I must looking for a bad ground or loose connection? Right?
