Strange buzzing noise when in 3rd gear

Im baffled something in the dash over by the oil pressure/temp gauge buzzes
when I shift to 3rd AND ONLY 3rd. Anyone experience this?

Does it happen right when you shift? At any specific RPM?

Happens as soon as I shift at any rpm. The sound comes from the dash almost like loose change. So there is a vibration in 3rd that rattles something a certain way. I asked the dealership to look at this 2 times and they have ignored my request. Do the gauges run on gears or sensors?

The oil guages are electrical. Is it possible the screw is loose that holds the right side of the cluster trim?
