Have you physical taken the cluster out and looked at it. I recently replace all my bulbs for the back lighting. As well as the AC backlight, giving them a tap made them light up. Till it would no longer come back on.

As stated, when they get tapped the filament makes contact and light for a while. I agree that changing the lamps will most likely take care of this. My center consul shift lights were doing the same thing.

I have a similar problem with the Radio in our X. Hit a bump at night and the lights go out, hit another bump and they come back on. This is on every single light on the radio.

I guess I am going to take it out and see what I can figure it out.
