Sounds like a potential issue related to the bad solder joints in the 
instrument cluster...
My not only exhibited this behavior, but some of the trouble indicators 
would be lit, and the autocheck computer display showed hieroglyphics...

Following the instructions on Chris' and Scott Mockery's websites, I 
removed the cluster form the car and touched up the solder joints, solving 
the problem.
