SOURCE: dashboard gauges out
There was a recall years ago on the ignition switch. Something wears and causes the switch to catch and hang a little so it doesn't spring back all the way to run position. The car runs but some of the other contacts are out of line or something. On mine it only happens occasionally and if I nudge the switch backwards just a little bit the dash lights and everything start working as it should. Or just shut it off and restart. Or go ahead and replace the switch itself.

There is a recall for this problem.If you have 70k miles or less and 7 yrs.The repair is free.If you have over 70k but not over 80k miles then the cluster is free but you have to pay for the labor.Anything over 80k your on your own.The cluster has to be programmed to your vehicle identification number after installation or you vehicle will not start.Hope this helps.Good luck.

I expect the is should do it for you.
There has been issues with the solder joints on the PIN connection to the gauge cluster. The issue being that over time thru vibration and such one of these solder joints will fail (happened on or 1999) you can repair this though. You will have to remove all of the trim from around the driver's side dash board, this will include the trim towards the center of the dash. Once these pieces are remove you'll need to remove the gauge panel (I believe (4) allen head screws) carefully bring the panel and release the wire clip from it. Looking at the back of the panel, where the plug was, carefully with plenty of light look for one of the pins to have a failed solder joint. It will be very faint however the failed joint will be a fine dark line around the pin. To correct use a small soldering iron and reheat this solder until it wants to flow, let it cool and reassemble.
I hope this may have helped,
PS: I have helped several persons with this issue, please review my profile; good luck with it (also often times with this issue the ABS light stays on)
