I have a 99 and mine did it once this summer, then last week I was switching lanes and used my turn signal (left) and it did it again. I changed lanes without signaling then used my turn signal (right) after I exited the freeway and the damn light went off and I got my speedometer, oil pressure, temp, etc back again. I thought I had a short as well.

I remember when something similar happened to me , i pulled out the gauges and clean the connections in the back and i twisted them a little bit to get a better connection, worked like a charm.

Thanks for the info, I had no idea what was going on.. Unfortunately it happened in a snow storm when I was getting ready to pass.

Mine did the same thing last Winter a few times. But haven't had any trouble with it since. The Tech Bulletin was really help though if it starts again.
