Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

If everything is coming on and operating properly besides the issues with the gauges here this usually in most all cases indicates a fault with the instrument cluster assembly itself.I have seen the circuit board in the instrument cluster act up like this here causing this issue needing either removed and repaired or removed and replaced to correct this fault.I would have this checked/tested further to be sure this is the cause here and then from there it can be repaired.I have had to replace several instrument clusters for this fault here in the past.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
