fuel gauge and temp gauge

Hey guys

I'm having an issue in my '95 318i convertible: the fuel and temp gauges don't read at all. I've had the car sit for about 6 months with a bad starter. Fixed the starter, connected the battery, and found problem with the gauges.

I've tried all my fuses, and they're all fine. Any other ideas?

sounds like a wiring issue behind the dash... were they working before?... if they were,, smack the top of the dash you may have built up some dust and therefore a bad connection.
