For years, mine would go out for a moment after
starting the car,but then come back on and stay on for
a while then go out again. The problem was said to be
a warning lamp circuit problem, so I cleaned the bulb
receptacle contacts on the instrument panel circuit
board and changed the bulb to no avail. A few months
ago, I removed the receptacle for an unrelatd repair,
and when I put it back together the problem
disappeared and has not reappeared.
