97/virso.
The fuses should be the same as a 98. I don't think anything electronic changed.

I recognized the small fuses in the diagram. That's what threw me off. Lol I'm not use to seeing the other relays and stuff around the micro fuses in the interior pdc.

Have you pulled your radio and gauge cluster to see if the previous owner might have done some rigging or sloppy electrical mods that could be grounding out. Not only disabling the gauges but grounding out the radio's audio out puts.

To Muzramp,
Your information is just what the doctor needed.
Although #7 fuse was working, the connection across the fuse was not.
I reconnected the link using additional wiring, soldering it the existing good fuse.
Once the connection was good, both my instrument gauge panel and radio speakers are again working.
Thanks !

It works.

I read advice from Muzramp.
I did check the fuse connections (Fuse #7) as displayed in his manual.
I reconnected the wiring, and now my speakers and cluster panel work.
Thanks
