You will want to replace the instrument cluster or have it rebuilt, there are rebuilders on ebay that will fix all problems for $90. The circuit board in the cluster is problem, there is no wire/sensor that would cause this issue. My goal is to provide 5 star service so please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks.
