Welcome I'm Chris aka Moose

Does this occur on startup or when already running?

When it happens does it effect the engine or transaxle?

-----------About me and Just Answer------------

I am in my upper 30's, have a wife and 2 sons. I farm, fish, hunt, build, and coach youth soccer. I work on anything with an engine, been to many schools and classes through my 12 years with the dealership to get trained and certified. I try the best I can to share what I know and or have access to with my customers. Please consider I base my questions and answers to you, solely on the information you give me since I am not there to see, smell, hear, touch, or test. I try my best to be here everyday starting at 3pm central. Rating an answer is required. Please let me know if your not pleased prior to rating or if you cannot rate me so I can try to help a different way. God Bless and have a great day.

Thanks Chris

Thanks, ***** ***** like the instrument cluster may be losing its power or ground from a poor connection. Do you have the skills to remove a cluster and use a DVOM to test them while wiggling the harness to see if you get an intermittent reading. I have diagrams if they would help.
