    Question: do the warning lights light up when starting?

    the fuel gauge connects with flat connectors. Check the connection on top of the tank.

    Happy troubleshooting

    not so reputable by the look of it ....... wonder how many thousand hours the clock's not been working for ??
    If it's got tracks, wheels, t*ts, or an engine, at some point it's gonna give you trouble!!

    Is this your instrument panel?

    Make sure you have a solid 12V on Pin12 and Pin11 is properly grounded.

    Check your Fuses - especially FU1
