If I remember correctly, I had the same problem with my car way back when I 
bought it...in like '99.  Real fun as it was happening on my drive back home 
to Seattle right after I picked the car up in Bend, Oregon. It's not a 
problem with the sensors per se, but an instrument cluster issue that goes 
back to either dirty connections or an intermitent solder joint in the 

Below is a link talking about this issue and fix.


Pretty sure that will straighten your problem out.
