Let me know what you find out - I've been looking at these gauges for my truck - in the other 7.3 interior forum for say 95-98 or whatever years - there's a glow shift thread with a few owners - ask them -

My guess is bad ground but don't know how that'd happen over the weekend - moisture?

Mine did the same thing. Then when I started the truck it would lose its preset color. I ended up disconnecting it. Ive narrowed mine down to a bad gauge.

2000 F350 CC Dually 4x4 Lariat 7.3 6spd, Leveled, 05 front end & mirrors, 4" turbo back, 38R, WW2, regulated return, Airdog 150, intake, Swamps IDM, tuned by PHP, Gear Vendors, 19.5s
Coming soon: 250/200s, studs, stealth hpop, as soon as I get springs and pushrods.

Had two sets , on to bigger and better things now for a few more extra dollars. Not worth the savings in my opinion.
OP - you can call their tech help and they will guide you through the problem.

Sold 01 350 6" on 37's and mild mods, 00 X 4" on 35's, 02 f350 4" 35's modded from fan to drive shaft, ridin the 03 with nose conversion with 125k and counting upwards slowly.
Never had CNC's poo on any of it, never will.
