A while ago all the gauges, the digital odometer and most indicator lamps in the instrument cluster started behaving erratically, constantly resetting. 2 months later and I still haven’t found a fix for this problem. Sometimes the gauges are resetting every 2 seconds, sometimes they work flawlessly, but 70% of the time they are just plain dead.
This sounds like a typical instrument cluster problem that’s frequently brought up in the forum, but the solutions mentioned in the posts like cleaning the cluster pins and twisting them to improve the connection have done nothing for me.
I’ve checked the voltage in the cluster harness as well as continuity to ground in the two ground circuit cavities and I am getting good readings throughout even when the gauges are dead. Also, I am able to bring up a ‘1.1’ on the odometer lcd by holding down the reset switch anytime the display quits on me, so that tells me it’s not a power issue.
Also, the lcd in the overhead console and the radio display go dim when the gauges fail and I have my headlights on, and very rarely they lose power completely for a second along with the gauges. Not sure if this is part of the same problem, but my DRLs also stopped turning on most of the time!
Any help with this issue will be appreciated…………
