Looks like a faulty ignition.
These things have problems with gauge clusters and ignitions.
If you are somewhat mechanically inclined its rather easy to replace both. The iginition is a bit more tricky and expensive than the cluster. You can try going to a parts yard and ripping one out of another car (Pontiac Gran Am's have the same engine and same ignition if you need other parts as well).

Did you end up getting it figured out? I have a 1999 Alero that started doing the same exact thing. What do you recommend that I do?

Yes we did. We had to replace the whole cluster panel. It works fine now
