My reverse, fuel and temp gauges and running lights all quit at the same time.I don't see any blown fuses. Any help would be great.

Swap out the "tail/main" relay.I think it's #3.
Get a few spare ones.They can cause other electrical troubles.Nice to have a extra one in the trunk.

The world is not going to finish today, as it is already tomorrow in Australia and New Zealand, and other islands of foreign nations such as Guam and Samoa.
