Q: Cold weather start only, instrument cluster malfunctions until car warms up. on 2006 Honda CR-V

When I enter my car in cold weather a clicking noise starts, then when I start the car the tach, gas gage, temp gauge, and lights click and flicker. Once the car warms up it stops. On youtube this is a documented problem with many examples. Some suggest this is a battery connection being the problem. I'm fairly mechanical and I've cleaned and checked the battery posts, at no time has the battery seemed weak or unable to start the car. It surprised me that from 2003 to 2006 youtube has examples of this occurring but no bulletin etc has come out.

thx for the reply, how do you come to that conclusion? I always thought that electronics either worked or didn't work, an intermittent transistor how would you even test for that? I don't want to spend $$$$$$$ having a dealer try to find the issue.
