My car recently started doing this but when I start it up all of the gauges go all the way to the right. My battery is six years old but it shows good voltage and starts up fine everytime

Does it go to the right and then back down again? Or it stay there

It is the AM eBay page I emailed him and he said yes and no... They sell mostly AM products but that sell others too... It's AM way of giving back to us even more... If I hadn't bought cs/GT rims I would have picked up the rims they have on there right now

Check fuse #21 (5A) in the central junction box, it powers the instrument cluster short-term memory and the Keep Alive Memory (KAM) in the PCM--if it is blown the cluster will re-calibrate each time you start the engine. Also the KAM will be cleared if the engine is off for more than 5-7 minutes, losing all of the adaptive learning values accumulated by the PCM.

If the fuse is not blown check the battery voltage while cranking the engine. If it falls below 10.5 V the cluster may act as you describe, if below 10.0 V it will behave as you describe. What this means is that there is a weak/dying cell in the battery, a high load (200+ A) battery test would confirm that...
