Search the forum you will find many good threads on this matter. You may have a voltage regulator going bad that seems to be the biggie on the B12.

i agree, its about 40 bucks from the dealer or you can go to the jy and pay 10 or so for it and replace it again in about 6 months like me :rolleyes: . basically, pull the cluster and remove the silver box(black boxs with fins on some) and bolt back up the way u took it off. 30 minutes for most, good luck! :cheers:

I have this exact same problem but ALL the other gauges read fine so you might just want to have that floater checked if it's the same for you. I know I just put a brand new voltage regulator in about a year ago, I'm not sure but shouldn't it still be good? Or do these run out quicker than I think?
