This happened to my V8 and I thought it was a sensor, but the dealer
said it was the dash. recently, I bought an instrument cluster way
cheap and replaced the auto-check portion of the IC and that solved the
problem. The dealer was correct. By the way, they wanted $1100 for the
IC, I paid much less.
