Question about 2000 Ford Windstar
I had same issue with my 2000 Windstar. Quick fix, just hit the top of the panel hard with your hand. The pointers will get back to its position and normal operation.
However, as you mentioned, this usually happens sometimes with no specific reason. So, as shared by other users, you might want to remove the Cluster and check and clean the connectors, that temporarily worker for me, but after a while, my car started doing this again, but not so ofter at all (2 times a yr for the last 3 yrs). This seems to be a ground issue inside the panel. Don't recomend replacing the alternator or battery $$ just for this issue.
See 'tachometer gage stuck' in case your tacho pointer gets stuck inside the prndl.

Check and make sure the main connector at the back of the instrument cluster is locked into the cluster
