Possibly the guage unit failed with the normal surge when the replacement was disconnected, it has happened to us,
with a miffed customer as a result, things happen with electronics, Plus seeing your vehicle, we have had to send
many instrument clusters our for repair of that make, model & year,the servo motors in those clusters are certainly prone to failure. There is an authorized Delco reman facility who repairs those clusters locally, their name is Techni-Car, and they are located in Oldsmar.
