Have the connection disconnected and checked for corrosion, and have dielectric lube applied to pins then reconnected. You may need to replace the dashboard if the problem persists. If you would like to have this checked, a certified technician from YourMechanic can come to your car’s location to inspect the electrical connections and figure out what fixes may be needed.
