Ask Your Own Buick Question

when you can tap on it and make it work there is an internal issue inside the gauge cluster itself

usually a bad processor board or some weak solder joints

the fix for this is removing it and sent out to be repaired or to replace it with a rebuilt one or pick up a used one to swao it out
