Angry DASHBOARD GAGES GOING HAYWIRE AND STALLING

dashboard gages go crazy and car stalls. At 40 mph speedometer reads "0" and with full tank, gas gage reads empty. Automatic trans 2006 PT cruiser with 48000 miles. Chrysler cannot fix or admits to the problem with this year at this mileage. Internet messages shows many instances of this same problem with this year at this mileage of 40000-50000 miles. Literally no trade-in value because of this problem. Solution?

Bad cables or bad battery. If the battery is very old might be worth going ahead and replacing it.
