Welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will do my best to assist you with this problem.

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
