Question

After my Tahoe gets up to normal operating tempetures when I hit a bump, any size bump in the road, all of the gauges start to go crazy. I have checked and cleaned all conection on grounding straps and both cable coming off the batery. If I have a OBD wire pluged into the OBD plug, no reader connection on the other end, the gauges work propery. Any sugestions on what to do?

    Only other options is to attempt to re-solder all points on the back of the cluster. Otherwise, get a new cluster.
