Gauges stopped working.

Dash lights are working along with everything else in the car except the gauges. I checked the IPC fuse and it's good. Haven't found a fuse that would effect the gauges, but might have missed something. The odometer is blank also. It's a 2000 Pontiac Grand am with a 2.4.  Electric locks but manual windows. Automatic transmission. If that helps.
This is what the recall says:
Year: 2000 Make: Pontiac Model: Grand Am
Number of Open Recalls: 1
NHTSA Recall Number: opens new window takes away from VIN lookup section> 14V400 Recall Date: July 3, 2014
Manufacturer Recall Number: N140350
General Motors has decided that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exists in 2000-2005 MY Chevrolet Impala and Monte Carlo, 1997-2003 MY Chevrolet Malibu, 2004-2005 MY Chevrolet Malibu Classic, 1999-2004 MY Oldsmobile Alero, 1998-2002 MY Oldsmobile Intrigue, 1999-2005 MY Pontiac Grand Am, and 2004-2008 MY Pontiac Grand Prix vehicles. If the key ring is carrying added weight and the vehicle goes off road or experiences some other jarring event, it may unintentionally move the key away from the run position. If this occurs, engine power, power steering and power braking may be affected, increasing the risk of a crash.
The timing of the key movement out of the "run" position, relative to the activation of the sensing algorithm of the crash event, may result in the airbags not deploying, increasing the potential for occupant injury in certain kinds of crashes. Until the recall has been performed, it is very important that customers remove all items from their key ring, leaving only the vehicle key. The key fob (if applicable), should also be removed from the key ring.
Dealers are to install two key rings and an insert in the key slot or a cover over the key head on all ignition keys, free of charge.

If the manufacturer has failed or is unable to remedy this safety recall for your vehicle in a timely manner, please contact the NHTSA Vehicle Safety Hotline at: 1-888-327-4236 or TTY: 1-800-424-9153 or file an online complaint with NHTSA.
Thanks in advance
