Went to start my 2002 1500 this morning and it started up, no problem, but there are no gauges working, no dome lights. and the head lights come on after about 10 seconds by themselves, does anyone have any ideas?

Sounds like an instrument cluster problem to me. Get it scanned and check for codes in the cluster.

Well, yesterday I had to leave the house, came back some 10 hours later and I had left the battery cable off, when I put the cable back on everything was back to normal, now what do I trust it or do I have to take it in to a shop?

It's your call but I predict the troubles will return at some point. The components you experienced trouble with are all controlled by the instrument cluster.
