Hi Kneale,

I had the exact same problem in mine.  Hit the dash and it'd work fine
untill I hit a bump in the road.  Nearly drove me crazy.  It's the
instrument cluster.  Some of the soldered connections on the circuit board
will eventually come loose causing the odd lighting.  You can either replace
the circuit board (expensive) or you can try repairing it.  There are
instructions for repairing it at:


Good luck!
