Do your dash lights work? There may be a loose connection on the back of the cluster... Heck, it sounds as if both wire groups have become un-clipped...

they also may be on the same fuse and that fuse may be blown. does the radio work (on a lot of fords the gauges and the radio are on the same fuse).

Re: 1998 Contour GL~Problems!!

Well, if all of your dash lights work, than I doubt it is the connection on the back of the cluster... To check it though you need to take off the dash and then pull out the cluster... I think there are 5(?) screws holding both things down... It is not that hard, I just installed a cluster with a tach in my 1995 GL... But like I said, if the dash lights work then it may be something farther down the line
