Typically the guages are tied to the navigation lights. If you are not getting voltage to the nav lights, you won't get voltage to the guages. How that is accomplished, varies from boat to boat (and what a PO may have created as well). I would try to determine if voltage is going to the switch or not. If yes, then test the switch. If the switch is good then check the lights. If there is no power to the switch, then you'll have to work backward to find the source of the disconnect.
