Oil pres., temp, gas gauges not working

My oil pres , temp and gas gauges are mot working! Oil pres. and temp have no reading, gas gauge stuck at half.

I've unplugged the tank sending unit and checked reading with vohm, it showed to have a reading of full (23ohms) but the gauge stayed on 1/2. Next I pulled the cluster and removed anti-slosh module, gauge then swung to full. I cleaned the contacts on the module and cluster, no change. I then replaced the 100uf-24v capacitor, still reads 1/2 tank. I then checked grounds to instrument cluster wiring, shows to be good. I,m kinda stumped here! I know normally you get either a full or empty reading when thing go bad but 1/2 tank reading?

The oil and temp gauges do have a signal to them but its commanding a minimum reading for both! WTF?

So where do I go from here? I'm ass-u-ming that the antislosh wont cause all of this, am I wrong?

Please feel free to give any input, good or bad. I'm usually pretty good with wiring, but that does not meant I don't have my head up my ass on this one!
