Default Gauges not working on 02 WRX

I am currently looking at a 2002 WRX here locally. I went to drive it today, and the speedometer, tach, and odometer do not work. The gas and temp gauge work just fine.

Would this be a wiring problem or would I have to replace the whole cluster?

short in wiring or a bad ground. and if it somehow is a bad cluster wrx ones arent hard to find and maybe you can get an 04+ with a center mounted tach

This is not a good sign on a car you are looking to buy. Without a working odometer there is no easy way to verify the true mileage. The problem could be real or "created" to hide something.
You can run a Carfax and check dealer records if available, but I'd suggest you keep looking and find a car where everything works.

Does the car have accessorys wired in like gauges? If so they might have over loaded the interior or clock fuse. Pull all the fuses and check them.

It has the 3 gauges that are where the clock was. Well the boost one is missing but the other two are there. The A piller trim is missing, so there could have possibly been gauges there at one point in time. I check the fuses on it.

Thanks for all the replies!

This car was modded and probably driven harshly this plus the electrical problems find another car.

Check all the fuses with a continuity tester. THen swap the relays around. You will find two fuse boxes. One under the hood and one under the dash on the left side. Most of the relays are the same so you can swap them around as a test.
