So 5 miles from my home tonight, my water pump decided to crap out. No warning until I came to a stop and heard some squealing. Checked gauges, nothing wrong yet. 1 mile later I realize I no longer have heat.

I kept driving home, no problems. I parked the truck and turned it off once I saw where the leak was. Now, when it starts, I have no gauges working at all. Truck starts fine, everything runs fine, just no gauges.

Is it possible water spraying around would short gauges sending units out? Is there some other reason now my gauges are dead?

Guess I'll get to change a water pump out over christmas.
