Hello,can someone please help me figure out this ongoing problem with the triple gauges on a 2004 350z?They stop working before and then worked again for awhile,now not working.I was thinking a loose connection.I am not sure what to remove to look or how to trouble shoot for this.thanks

Intermittent failure is most likely a bad connector or ground somewhere. Let me ask this, has the stereo been out lately?

There is a connector under the center console that must be disconnected to remove the console. It obviously was not fully connected when the console was re-installed.

Just gotta dig in and see what you can find. Start by pulling the triple cluster and checking the harness at the rear then follow the wires.

Yep, those gauges either work or they don't. Definitely sounds like a loose connection.
