i just tap on mine and it works...lol well the first thing I would check is the fuse. if that is ok then pull the dash and look for burnt bulbs or loose wires.

I also have to tap on mine to get them to work on my 88, my gas gauge also fluctuates alot. I would also check the fuses and wires, im thinking about replacing the whole thing myself...

You might check the dash light dimmer switch. A lot of them are being sold on e-bay which makes me think other people must need them. They sell for about $5.00 to $15.00 postage inculded

The dash piece on my '84 comes loose by only loosening two screws. I suggest you loosen yours and check the plugs on the rear. There might be some loose wires / connectors by the sound of things.

Cheers!
