Default Dash gauges reset

Read throught the techinfo on the grounding issues on the driver and passenger floors
Does the dash group through these as well
Twice in two days as I coasted to a turn the dash reset all the gauges
thinking a bad ground maybe?
If it is the floor ground buses what holds the trim over the carpet in place?
Do I need to remove the plastic pillars inside each door to get the bottom plastic out
94 SSEI

Thanks

no need to remove pillar pieces. remove any visible screw, and pull up. it is held on with clips. once you get it off, you will see.

I believe at least some of the dash is grounded there. Check those out, and also this techinfo article.

Default Dash Gauges Reset Update Fixed!!!!!!!!!

I pulled up the carpets and checked the ground buses
Both where clean and dry but I cleaned them up anyway and put on diaelectric grease.
Next step was look at the battery terminals
Hmmmm Lots of white crappy looking corrosion on the hot terminal and a little on the ground
Cleaned it up and Presto Chango no more dash gauge resets!!!
Thanks for the great responses
And thanks to the admin'* that setup this forum.
It is the best!
