My gas/coolant/tach gauges all stopped working, but my speedo still works. I called up my Mech and he said that it is the service boards or whatnot behind the disp. And he said thats its best to just buy re-manufactured parts instead of paying big bucks for new ones. And before my final question, my fan motor also went out, so at any speed that I put it at, no air comes out. And my Mech said that its the resister cable thing. Where can I buy these parts so that I can just get em and have him install em right away? Any input would be great. Thanks.

The gauge consol has a set of batteries that periodicly die. You can take them in to get fixed but its pretty easy to change your self. The fan motor could be a number of things. Pop off the firewall cover inside the engine bay and take a look for your self. Chances are one of the conncetion prongs broke off and will just need to be soldered back on.

I was looking into the SI Board Batteries a while ago after having random check lights flashing at me... the issue turned out to be a knackered alternator but still there's a lot of useful material on BEN:
