    I have the diagram that tells me which fuse is for what, but I can’t see one for fuel/temperature gauge, instrument.
    Can anyone tell me which one it is?

    Cheers

    I'm not sure anyone quite understands what you are asking ? thus no responses.

    *****Update: Thanks for correcting the question in your original post.

    Yeah sorry I’m new on here.
    I’ve changed the question. Hopefully that helps.
    Cheers

    Without qualifying I'm pretty sure you'll find that there is no separate fuse for the Temp and Fuel gauges on their own, just an instrument fuse.



    ****Update, ......Fuse No. 10 in the under dash fuse panel is the Instrument fuse and there is no other separate fuse within the power supply system to the Temp and Fuel gauges.

    You might need the "dash slap" to get the gauges working if they are stuck on zero.

    Agree with vs-lover. The wiring diagram only shows the one fuse (F10) servicing all the instruments in the cluster. Fuse F10 is in the main fuse panel assembly located inside the vehicle passenger compartment, behind the instrument panel lower right hand side cover assembly, and mounted to the fuse panel support.

    Yeah it was the first thing I tried. It’s happening with both gauges simultaneously. Working, not working. So I’m assuming it’s electrical.

    Probably the 10V regulator on the cluster PCB needs the legs resoldered.
    Cheers.

    If gauges work again after you tap dash near rev tacho area it will be dry solder joints in voltage regulator.

    Think fuse 10 is for auto solenoid & dashlights iirc

    My VR is good for a week or so after a slap on top of the dash. Been like that for over 10 years, might fix it one day..
