anyone elses gauges ever go crazy?

This has happened once since i've owned the car. and again just a few days ago...

All of a sudden the D light starts flashing on me, and the speedometer just starts jumping around. like its being shocked with electricity.

Take the car off and restart it, no poblems.

anyone else experience this?

also fyi, I just replaced my Main Relay with a brand new one to correct a starting problem I had (which worked)

The Honda OEM replacement part is 78410-SF1-505 which includes a keyed drive shaft spindle

Here are a few links:

Just try searching a little harder, you'll come up with what you're looking for.

Re: anyone elses gauges ever go crazy?

since winter hit, my rpm needle jumps like crazy, i believe i have a air bubble somewhere. also, when i floor it, my brights would come on by them selves, it doesnt do it anymore lol and my gas gauge reads completely empty at times.
