It sounds like you have a bad ground somewhere on your guage cluster. The guage cluster ground wires are usually orange. If you can get to a buldle that does to your guage cluster or you have the expertice to remove the guage cluster, splice into all the grown wires and ground them. I'm 90% sure that will fix your problem!
