2000 Nissan Altima Instrument Panel shutting down irratically


#1

Instrument panel on Altima shuts down or freezes up erratically? There is no conditions I have fund when this happens consistently. Typically after leaving the car overnight in the drive next time around everything works properly.
I have checked fuses in the car and under the hood. Has anyone found a real fix or the root cause of what causes this?

It could be a bad connection at the wire harness connectors behind the gauge cluster. Try hitting the top of the dash when it acts up to see if that makes it behave. If so, the cluster may have to be pulled out and the connectors checked.
