Got a Gremlin...

Watch the videos below please...I can't figure this out and I'm about to take my truck in to have a professional re-wire my pillar gauges...but I never had any issues like this before I replaced the HPOP back in January. Anyway...I know its an electrical problem...anyone have some input? This happens randomly...I could turn the truck off and restart it and the problem goes away. But then will randomly come back...vids below. Thanks! All three clips show it acting differently each time..video three also shows the trans temp acting up...

BUMP BUMP BUMP...anyone? The grounds looked good last time I checked...at least for the gauges. I never had any electrical issues until the top end of the motor was torn apart to replace the HPOP back in January...

It has to be a power or ground wire issue. Get a multimeter, disconnect one of the gauges so you can access the harness. Check the power and ground with key off and also with key on with a dvm. Seems like it should be an easy fix. Just have to physically look at the wires from one end to the other. Especially at the firewall passthru. It will be something simple, you will find it.
