bad earth, check the main dash earths on either side of thecar, just between the door jam and the fuse box on drivers side, and mirror postion on passenger side, or at least I think thats the main earths for the instruments

brown or black cable connected to the body work (its thin wire) via a silver metal tag, held on with a 13mm bolt. its under the carpet (held on with black roundthings undone by fingers or screwdriver depending on god knows principles, OR by door seals and some tugging, don't worry easier to put back on then take off!)
