First thing is to check battery voltage. Then check voltage @ gauges. If ok, check grounds, or just run a jumper wire from back of gauge to a known good metal ground...

I also think it is a ground problem.. remove the ground off your battery and clean and replace. Then you can us a volt meter to check at gauges to make sure you are getting correct voltage to gauges. Also you can check your ground with a simple circuit tester or volt meter. Doesn't sound like anything too intense. Good luck and let us know what you found.
