: Hi Guys,

: My temperature gauge is sometimes erratic. Similar behavior on a 2002 was solved by installing an additional ground wire from the back of the instrument cluster to a ground point. Having looked at the wiring behind the cluster, it appears that the ground connections are secure. Are there any places where I could attach an additional ground for the temp gauge? Any other ideas? Thanks.

I own an "88 with the same problem... and my tach doesn't work...I started to think that the problem was extra ground is a great idea.
