I disagree. Being an SSE cluster, he has the sweep function. When the cluster loses power, they reset and sweep. I think that'* what he'* seeing.

Lucas, I think you're going to have to more carefully define "Crazy" for us so we don't get into an argument here.

We're all reading this differently.

the guages sweep and then shut off completely even the compass and driver information center. somtimes they will sweep and stay on for a few minutes then shut off. the plugs and wires were replaced and the coil packs and the icm i had tested they were ok. i even had the map sensor tested it was ok too.

To clarify...I've edited my above post. I was talking more to the mechanical issues.

The other Bill and I agree about the connection for the cluster/possible bad cluster. Simply put...possible electrical issue.

You still have an ignition miss in OD. Measure the resistance of the secondaries of the coils, report the numbers back here. Measure the resistance of each plug wire. Report those back here.

Pull all 6 plugs and inspect them. Post pics of them, keep them in order so you know which cylinder they came from.

Did you replace the wires AFTER the problem with the OD started or before?

I think we need to walk through this one question at a time.
