gauge delay

Hello friends, I was wondering if any of you had ever heard of this problem.
The gauges in my 01 BULLITT don't "wake up" until about 10-12 seconds after I start the engine.
After that time, they suddenly come to life.
I've disconnected the battery hoping that would correct it with no luck.
Any help would be appreciated.

Test the charging system (battery/alternator). Also, make sure that the battery cables are clean, tight and in good condition.

I will second that test the battery first voltage is probably low after cranking gauges start working properly when alternator kicks on and starts charging
