I cant get my oil, water temp, volt, and fuel lever gauges to work. The lights works for them and the speedo, tach, and boost gauges work too. I have change the oil and water temp sender, and change the fuse and check most of the wireing and tryed different gauges and havent had any luck.

sounds like the IVR on back of the gauge cluster. Looks like a metal can and unplugs kinds like a 9v battery

Check to see if there is voltage on the grey/yellow wire(pin #7)in the IP connector plug. It is a 8.5 ohm resistance wire that connects directly back to the ign sw.

Probably not the problem with your car, but just in case:

On my cars, there is an electrical connector near where the upper and lower intakes join. This connector was not connected when I bought the TC, and gauges didn't work. I reconnected it, and they did. Kinda lucky, since I was troubleshooting a totally different problem at the time, which turned out to be a dead EEC relay.

Hope this helps.

Just to add to this... if there is no voltage on this wire with the key in run, replace the ignition switch.
