Fuel guage/tilt and trim guage not working

Hi all
Just got my first RIB a Zodiac Yachtline 480 with Mariner 60 on it. All seems well except for the fuel guage and tilt and trim guages are not working. Quick question - and bear in mind electrics are not my strong point - what is the most likely fault?

Interested to hear what I should look for first to try and get the fuel guage working? Guage, wiring, fuel sender???

hope someone out there has a view or a diagnostic process.

cheers

Are they on the same gauge face? I'd suspect an unconnected connector in your wiring harness. Most likely just behind the console face.

If it's got push on connectors check to see if their all oxidised (green and dusty) dissconnect them clean with scratch bruch and replace.

May do the job.
