I had the same problem, it was a bad wire somewhere in the dash, causing it to short out. ( I did the same, cleaned the conenctors, jiggled the wires, checked as much of the wiring as i could and couldn't find the problem) None of the gauges worked, speed, fuel, oil pressure, nothing except the odometer. I Had to bring it to a shop.
Carry a full jerry can with you untill you can get it to a shop that specializes in electronics
