I'm leaning toward a bad part in the cluster.
Thanks Bill, for some odd reason I thought that too. Thats why I asked if I should just go buy a new one and fork out a couple hundred dollars for one. yuk

Couple hundred...no way.

Ebay usually has them if no one here does... I think ~$30

Always try this:

And this:

FIRST. Always before buying parts. One or both of these procedures should fix 90% of these issues.

I looked in my 92 FSM and didn't find an IP relay in the panel behind the glove box. If there is one, I don't know where it is.

I didnt think so, its weird how Autorock and Advance auto has these relays (maybe for a different type of GM car but not our bonnies). I guess I will try the junk yard hit or miss deal. I have tried what wilwren posted above yours and mine are nice and clean with dieelectric grease and neatly tucked away but still no fix - I believe its a cluster problem with no signs of damages. Don't know, but if the junk yard deal does not work - I will have to purchase a new one. (heck I maybe gut out a junk yard one and put liquid filled Autometer gauges.
