Question about 2000 Chevrolet S-10
When I turn off my truck, the fuel, and temp gauges come back on, although the readings are not accurate at this point. The oil pressure gauge never goes off to 0.Why? Also when I push the odometer reset button when the truck is off it make all but the oil pressure gauges go to zero then a few seconds later they start to read again? AND when I fill the tank the fuel gauges goes to zero then to full intermittently.
There is a connector on the back of the guage cluster that may be loose or have a broken clip. The only other option could be a ground wire loosely connected which is a good possiblitliy. It will likely be on the same harness and grounded to the metal frame under the dash.

Electrical problem. take the truck to the dealer and have the computer checked / reprogrammed. unfortunately, your average mechanic cannot reprogram the computer. have you noticed any other problem that would point in the direction of an electrical problem (lights, radio, lighter, etc.)?
