Are there any dangers associated with malfunctioning gauge clusters?

Malfunctioning gauges can lead to inaccurate readings, which can cause the driver to make wrong decisions or overlook warning signs If a gauge is consistently stuck at the same reading, it can also be an indicator that something is wrong with the vehicle and needs to be inspected by a mechanic.

It is important to have these checked out regularly by a professional mechanic to ensure accuracy and safety.
