About 6 months ago, an orange blob appeared at the top of my SOC gauge. It looked like an LCD had exploded. It slowly grew until it covered about 1/3 of the gauge. Then it started climbing (oozing?) up the ASST gauge until it covered about 2/3 of that. It was bright orange, basically the same color as the bars. It slowly receded from the SOC, and then during 1 long drive last week, it "drained" out of the ASST gauge also. Now the only thing left is a few speckles here and there. The gauges themselves seem to work fine. All the bars light up when I turn the key on. Has anyone else experienced this problem? Any possible explanations (beyond the usual X-files)? Thanks.
