Give the dash gauge panel a thumping in case its the common issue of the connectors at the back .....

Probably should remove it and give it a dose of dialectric grease anyway

That tests the actual gauges for functionality, not their connections.

sorry to have no pertinent info to add to your diagnosis i just wanted to let you know i laughed very hard.
Your supposed to know the terrain BEFORE you take the wife out. That way nothing happens and you look like an expert. lol

Was just a thought ....

As an aside ..... Im pretty sure that you could have the gauges sitting on the living room floor and the self-test would work as long as you fed it 12v.

ACTUATOR TEST
The instrument cluster actuator test will put the cluster into its self- diagnostic mode. In this mode the cluster will position each of the gauge needles at various specified calibration points, and turn all of the
CCD data bus message-controlled lamps on and off at specified time intervals (Fig. 1) or (Fig. 2).
Successful completion of the actuator test will confirm that the cluster circuitry, gauges, and lamps are capable of operating as designed. However, there may still be a problem with the CCD data bus, the Powertrain
Control Module (PCM), the Airbag Control Module (ACM), or the inputs to one of these modules.


You have been through the fuseboxes and tested/swapped over ... all relevant fuses & relays ???

i had been through that crossing just days earlier (and dozens of times before that). like i said the bottom had washed out. what should have been a tire rinse turned into a tow home.
