Sounds like a bad connection, maybe a blown bulb. The cluster can be taken out relatively easily, opened, and the items can be fixed/replaced without much hassle. I see your car is a '99 though, is it still under warranty? I only ask because opening your cluster will void it, and if something happens that you can't figure out it could be costly. Colors, gauge faces, can all be changed. There are many companies that sell those things, or ask Das Boot, and different color LED's can be sourced easily enough.
