faulty gauge cluster

Hey I was wondering if any one has had this problem. i have a 97 c280 and my gauges work about 1 out of every 5 times i use the car. its not like the sticky gauges the needles dont have any little posts to sit on and they never pop on while your driving. when you start the car they either work or they dont. thanks!

Sounds like you have a short in the wiring. I would pull the dash and the gauge cluster to see if there are any loose connections and also make sure that the wiring is still in good shape.
