    hi. my fuel gauge and temp gauge stopped working this morning. all was well upon start up. went to local garage to fill up /check oil and water. got back in and no fuel/temp gauge ?. drove from Edinburgh to Newcastle and back. on the way back the fuel gauge came back on intermittently.the fuel gauge working coincided with me braking ?. upon braking the fuel gauge started working (displaying various readings)and then after from 5 seconds to a few minutes it would stop. the temp gauge never fluttered into life at all. just had cabin filter replaced and the fault has only occurred since then. would i be right in thinking it seems to be a loose wire near the brake pedal causing the fuel gauge to intermittently work. or could it be something else. as for the temp gauge i am lost. seems strange they both stopped working at the same time. possible wires/connection disturbed when cabin filter done ?. any help would be much appreciated. thanks
