Gauges Asleep at Start
When I start the truck, sometimes the gauges don't move and the needles vibrate a bit for about 10-15 seconds. Then all of a sudden, they jump to life. I also notice that whatever view I have set in the information display (like mpg) gets reset to the default (just outside temp). Typically I see this if I haven't driven in a couple of day, or sometimes if she sits overnight.
My guess is that it's a voltage issue. I checked and cleaned all the connectors on the battery, so it's not a conductance issue. Maybe the battery is starting to go? I am in Phoenix, so batteries usually only last 2-3 years around here.
What do you guys think, new battery or is this a sign of evil spirits in the cluster?
