Oddly enough this just happened to the gauges on my 1998 LS400 too. I replaced the fuse in the drivers footwell, even though the old one was not blown (checked with meter). However a few miles of driving and the gauges malfunctioned again, dropping to nothing or even worse all going horizontal.

I checked the battery voltage and found my terminal leads do not fully tighten on the battery posts. The terminals were loose!! No wonder the thing was getting upset. I also had the VSC lightcome on mysteriously, it was linked to this also.

Put some copper wire under the clamp and have not had the problem since.

Hope yours is similar.
