I have no action on my guages like odometer/speedometer/temp guage and gas guage, i will be driving down the road when all of the sudden the lights will blink(guages) so i can see how fast i'm driving ect. then the speedometer will freeze at a certain speed like 55mph (when i know i'm not driving that fast) now all of the guages are not working, all other electrical is working fine/lights radio/ my battery is fully charged, anyone have any suggestions??

I would check your alternator's load just to be on the safe side, the polarities on the alternator might be caput.

Sounds like the plug at the back of the gauges is loose/damaged or the cluster itself is failing..

The gauges on these clusters are floating ( except the Speedo that one has tension to prevent it moving) as in there not spring loaded I have a cluster on my desk ( was supposed to be for a Base to SE upgrade but this one has 3 times the miles my car actually has) and if I smack the desk hard enough the tach will move to the top and the speedo will jump and stay if I have the music goin loud enough they all dance :)
