dash gauges quit. 87 190 help please

unable to find any info in the archieves. The tach and fuel gauge stopped working at the same time today. I was charging my battery with battery in car and connected. It is a 87 190D2.5 turbo. What is common to the fuel gauge and tach that I may have damaged? Checked 10amp fuse behind battery and it is okay
TIA
joel

If your fuses are OK then you likely have a grounding problem. The cluster is prone to that. The only common denominator is the corrosion on the grounding strap that connects between the two sides of the cluster. What I don't understand is why simply charging the batter would cause that. I'd pull the cluster and remove the corrosion from those straps. I did it with a pencil eraser and solved a similar problem.

What straps? Do you have a picture?
