Could be a bad stepper motor in the instrument cluster. If that's the case the cluster assembly will need to be replaced. On a late model, high end, car such as yours I'd recommend letting your local Cadillac Dealer diagnose the problem. Especially since it most likely is an electrical problem. Then you can decide if it's something you want to fix yourself or if you want them to handle the repair. HTH. -Jim
