Check out the 6.0 tech file man. There is a guide how to fix the problem. There are 4 or 5 little boards inside of the overhead unit. Usually the soder points get weak and these boards will come loose. Simple soder should fix your problem.

Mine did the same thing and I took it out and the little screen had a burn mark in it. I replaced it and it is not acurit at all it kept telling me that I was getting a average 14mpg when doing the math I after each fill up I was really getting between 17 and 19 mpg. So it was nice on my cross country trip but really served no real use.
