Same Problem and Solution
Yippee!!! I had the same problem and solution as the dude78 and who905. It is amazing when you flip over the fuse box and find the same wire broken at the connector. It looked exactly as the picture that who95 posted (thanks-it helped).
One tip is to clean the connector with fine sandpaper or a wire brush so that the solder will work better.
I had my gages go before, but that time it was a faulty instrument cluster which was fixed when I swapped one from the wreckers. I had no other electrical problems. This problem was different because all these things did not work (instrument cluster, turn signals, hazard switch, and headlight chimes that go on if headlights are left on when key is taken out of ignition). Thanks everybody. The internet is sure useful sometimes.
