After fixing about a dozen small problems on the 03 X2 I bought this spring I'm finally left with just one last problem. I have an intermittent problem with the Volt and Temp gauges. It seems that after repeated starts during the course of the day the volt gauge will stop working, just goes dead. Sometimes the temp gauge will also quit working too but always with the volt gauge first, never by itself. I've cleaned the battery terminals multiple times, pulled the control box and cleaned the terminal connectors, cleaned and tightened the ground and power lugs without resolving the problem. Is there anything else to check before giving in and taking it to the dealer? I really don't mind paying to get this fixed but the last thing I need is to start paying someone $140/hour to start swapping parts out. I'm still trying to figure out how these new gauges are an inprovment over the old style gauges I had on my 95 200VRS that always worked.
