You will need to take the dash and the instrument cluster apart. not the entire dash but just the area around the instrument cluster and steering column

1996 VW Jetta 4.0 cyl Gauges are going out/Dashlights...


I have the same problem, I own a 1996 VW Jetta Trek Edition,
I suspect the dashboard instrument panel is going out,
or it is the wire harness.
Everytime I hit a bump on the road one of the gauges acts up.
So I am going to replace my whole dashboard instrument panel
and see what happens, if that doesn't work, then it must be the harness
