Having touble with gauges. All of a sudden the fuel and temp gauges are pegging to the right. Generally happens after stopping and then when I get back in the truck and start it the gauges peg . It use to never do it when first cranked in the AM ,but now it will do it at different times. Also the "service engine soon " light is on. The truck runs great and the gauge problem as no effect on the truck's performance. Any help would be appreciated.

    a weak/old/about-to-entirely-fail battery can cause most any symptoms, even random things like you describe. You use an OBD code reader to read the stored error codes - they probably provide a great clue. They are $20 or so at auto parts stores.
