Fuel and Temperature Gauge Problem

Hello.
I have a 1999 Chevy Malibu, 3.1L V6
I was driving and noticed that the temperature gauge and the fuel gauge are completely dead. There is no movement at all, even when I try to start the car. I checked every possible fuse that could be related to this problem. I have read also that it could be a ground connection problem in the hood, or a resistor behind the instrument panel?
I am weary about doing anything drastic and would appreciate any help for more clarification; Mechanics are my last resort.

Any help would be appreciated,
-Joe

Turns out it was a fuse in the fuse block under my hood.
The instrument cluster is fine, the problem is that the 10AMP fuse slot keeps blowing the fuse. It's some sort of electrical problem.

I appreciate your response.

I have run into this as well. Its #37 in the fuse box under the hood. Carry a few spare fuses with you. I have a 99 that goes through about 5 fuses a year. Still tracing down the cause.........

I signed up to share what I know about this.com my girl has a 2000 chevy malibu. We had a problem with a coolent hose so we replaced them. I wanted to check my fuses to make sure it was not the fan before I took off. I pulled the ac diode to see what it was while I was in there. Tricky little things. So after it was all said and done the engine light was on. Code said its the caming posistion sensor is out. Also.... no temp or gas gauge. At all! So I went and found fuse 37 like the guy said. It was blew. I put another fuse in. On accesory everything is fine. At the point there the starter engages the fuse blows. But I can start the car and drop the fuse in and its good again. Which makes me think its a short in the starter or something to do with the cam senser posistion. Just wanted to share... maybe someone can take it from there....
