2 gauges stopped working, YJ

My oil gauge and alternator gauge stopped working. I took the panel apart and cleaned all the nasty copper contacts but still nothing. I did get the rest of the bulbs to work, however. I don't think that 2 gauges would have broken at the same time so it must be electrical. Contact on oil pressure sensor looked good. Any suggestions?

According to my 95 schematics, the voltmeter and oil pressure guages share a common 12V (12) and ground (13) connector on the instrument cluster. I don't see anything else they have in common.

first of all, check your fuses. if their oklook for a broken wire. if the fuses are good and the voltmeter isn't working you have no juice getting to it, or no ground from it. it's as easy as that.
