Smile 94 accord dx speedo, tach, etc. are dead

I have a 1994 Accord DX 4 door automatic. The following have all stopped working:

Fuel Gage
Temp Gage
Dash Clock (will work when manually activated with the button)
Shift Lock Release
Intermittent Wiper (low and high settings work)

I have read many threads on here and there seems to be a variety of "cures" which I have tried. None have had this unique set of issues, and I was wondering if they are all from the same cause, or just a coincidence of different issues.

Have you checked the fusebox underneath the dash in your car?

I took it to Honda, they were only checking the CVJ and the shift lock release. They did not say anything about the fuse box, but they claimed my switch on the brake pedal "must be the problem" with the shift lock release. I will check all of the fuses to see if that is it. It all started with a surging acceleration, speedo went erratic, then quit. Gradually, the other gauges begin to fail. Then the clock,shift lock release,and the wiper problem all occurred together, including the rear defroster as well (forgot that above).

I agree check fuse(s). Had a similar problem, I'd drive around guessing my speed haha. Spent money on other parts and finds out it was a fuse O.o
Check both fuse compartments.
