Gameover, firstly 'grats on gettin back to the Bonnie family.

Bill had the same kind of problems with my 95 when he bought it. Eventually wound up replacing the instrument clusters for the gauges. You might need to do the same.

Check the ground locations at each front door sill opening under the carpet. Take 'em apart and clean them.

Remove the cluster using the procedure in Techinfo and clean the contacts for the gauges in question.
