Ok I got the fuel pump figured out now on to the gauges. Temp, tach and fuel gauge not working. Not sure about the speedo yet. Everything else is working. Someone on another site suggested jiggling the connection above the clutch pedal. I did and nothing still.

Is this a project truck? I have had the plug in behind the cluster come partially unplugged while I was in there doing other work.

Nope. Its never been apart. It did sit for a couple years. I got it from a friend of mine and he has had the battery out a few times. I'll check the fuse and see if thats it. I her the whole dash can go bad so maybe thats the problem.

I see you have a 2006. They changed things through the years, it's hard for me to keep up. But you might have the model where Ford put a computer in the cluster. It communicated with the engine computer for engine temp and rpm through a communication network in the truck and then tells the gauges what to read. I believe it's called a CAN system.
