    The cluster gauges go on and off randomly. If this were a fuse, they most likely stay off until I replace the fuse. I'm somewhat convienced that this is something else!

    Thanks for offering your thoughts. I appreciate that.

    OK, sound like a loss conection or harnsess there; I think that you will need take off the dashboard instruments.
