Sounds like a short inside the circuit board; the clusters on the 2000-2005 Cavaliers and Sunfires are known for shorting out easy causing all sorts of problems from dimming odometer lights, guages sticking, sections of the cluster not lighting up ect. The best fix is to replace the cluster (about $500 parts + 1.5 hours of labour at the dealer). Your best bet is too find a replacement cluster at a scrap yard. Make sure you get a cluster from a 2000-2005 model. Its simply plug and play.

I had this problem too, I think it's the ECM resetting itself, it lasted for about 10 startups, the first 5, it would stall out, the next 5, it would idle fast between switching gears.
