So recently I have been having this intermittent problem with the cluster. So sometimes the fuel gauge goes way past full and the temperature gauge goes to 1/4 of the way. I have attempted to attach a photo. This photo is when the car is completely COLD. Also the door light in the cluster doesn't work unless you hit the cluster a few times. I notice as well that when hitting the cluster, the temperature goes up, but the car isnt even on. Is my cluster broken or is there another issue like grounding??
This issue only happens every once in a while but it still annoying.
Please help and thanks in advanced.

The clusters have wires that run along the outside of the motherboard. Pull the cluster and verify they aren't rubbing on anything or shorting.

So i pull the cluster and inspected those wires you were talking about and all the wires were intact. Still the problem occurs. Only occasionally. Just went to fill the car up and the gauges were fine but i when i started the car yesterday it was once again broken. Please help
