    issue started last night, the all the gauges and lights in my gauge pod went dead. non of the gauges worked, my two turn signal indicator lights were on steady(off outside the truck), and my brights indicator was on(brights were off). this was all with the lights on. with the lights off the gauges only partially function, everything was lower then it should be. eg. i had almost a full tank, and it showed less that half.

    any suggestions as the the problem and the cure. i havent taken anytime to trouble shoot, but before i start id figure id ask, hoping someone has delt with it before.

    thanks,
    Dave

    alternator? I'd take it to a parts store and see if they can check your voltage reading. How old is the battery? Sometimes one or two ports can dry up and cause a simliar loss...

    would a voltage loss cause such a specific malfunction though? all other electrical/electronic systems seem to be working properly.
