Default 67 DeVille - Gauges not working

Just bought this 67 coupe. In good shape except the gauges aren't working (I knew when I bought). I was wondering if it's as simple as just putting in a new printed circuit card? Any ideas would be appreciated.

check fuse and connector for printed circuit first. If printed circuit is cause you should see break in it. Speedo is mechanical not electric.

Thank you. Speedo works...bounces a little but works. I need to get behind the dash and check that stuff. Thanks.

Slowroll, do you know if there is a relay for the dash gauges?

no relay for gauges or dash lights. Wiring diagrams suck for lack of a better word until the mid late 70's. It's just a road map with a bazillin little lines.

Thanks. Makes sense. I went ahead and bought fuses and a new circuit card so I'll have the replacements if I need them while I'm in there and have the dash out.

Finally got to take it for a spin and get some gas. Runs great.

Last night I had tried to start it and it wouldn't. After buying a new battery today and that not working either, I found out one of the many wires running to the battery was loose. Cranked right up after.
