I was hoping someone might know something about this. When I apply the breaks or use the turn signals my temp/gas gauges drop (ie they don't register). Once i take my foot off the breaks both gauges rise to their normal reading. However, once i'm done using the turn signal the gauges remain bottomed out and don't work properly until I turn off the 90. When using the brakes the gauges move back up when I take my foot off the pedal. I've checked all the sockets and most of the wiring and all appears to be good. I removed the flasher and tried the breaks and the gauges operate properly (and the rear brake lights do come on). So, do you think the problem is the flasher or do you think there is a short in the wiring somewhere. The turn signals do not work.
I can't get a flasher for a few hours so wanted to see if there was anything else i should check before going to the auto parts store later today.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

FYI, the local auto parts store didn't have the flasher so I put it back in and everything works now.
