My assumption would be that they have a connection or a wire that is falling apart. I know on mine if one of the wires that sticks out below the cluster isn't just right one of the sections won't light. You should also check the ground wire.

+1 on the connections.

Always check your connections first, if they're working some of the time, there's a good chance you have a bad connection and or ground connection.

I snapped off the dimmer that came with the gauges and now I'm going to T-tap the wire into the dimmer on the car and ill see if that works

Did you create a new ground or try to use a ground already available? When I put mine in we had to drill a hole in the chassis to make a good ground. Have had no issues thus far.
