The whole gauge cluster is electronic, so it could be a simple case of a bad connection. I would probably take the cluster out and see if the main connector(you will see it, its a big rectangle harness)is plugged in all the way and see if there may be some corrousion on it.

Any other ideas fellas(or ladies)

Check the harness Jonesy described for wires that have fallen out. I had crazy guage issues after swapping my dash and thats what did it to me. Also, could this be an IVR problem?

I had that happen on an 88 I had - turned out a fuse was loose- once I pushed it all the wayin those devices started working again. I think it was #14.
