Pull your gauge cluster and clean the ribbon cable at the connector.

You can easily fry the circuit board while removing it. It can ground/short to the dash frame.

Yes, there is another on the left side of the block, about in the middle, it isn't for the gauge. (on 4.2 engine. The 4.0 has 2 as well, but I have no idea where the other one is).
