[DML] Re: Temp gauge flipped over

This is usually a bad wiring connnection causing a voltage spike, 
unfortunately it can be anywhere in the car. For example - I put up 
with this for about 4 years on my car. I had the rear carpeted panel 
out a while ago and discovered that the main "ground" feed into the car 
from the engine compartment (that huge bundle of black wires) was not 
very tight. I took it apart, cleaned all the lugs and put it back 
together just on general maintenance principles. I've never seen the 
gauge do this backflip again.
