Has anyone else had this problem?

Nine times out of ten my temperature gauge does not work until it gets to halfway on gauge when all of a sudden it flicks up or I have to flick the area of the cluster to get it to work. Then the needle sometimes wiggles side to side and goes to cold. Basically it does what it wants when it wants, although never goes past halfway as car never gets hot.

My fuel gauge also did it once but calmed down again now.

Is this a common fault or anyone had the same thing?
