You said all of the fuses have been checked... I would replace them also... there can be hairline cracks in them. It sounds as though your instrument cluster fuse is blown... I'd change it anyway, it's only a few cents! Good luck.

I had the same gauge problem with my 300D. The fuse was visually intact and undamaged but I replaced it anyways. It fixed my problem and cost $0.50. I would say it is worth a try.
