Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.My info is somewhat limited on your model here but I had seen no one else has responded and would like to see if I can help here.If at any time you feel that I cannot help with this please let me know.

From what you have described here this sounds like a fault with the cluster assembly itself.Since it does run and ride o.k. make sure no wiring is damaged leading to the cluster and if this is all o.k. I suspect the cluster itself may be at fault here needing repaired or replaced.I have seen the cluster fail in the past before needing replaced for this fault here.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,your 5 star rating is appreciated.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete

before I go order a new cluster is the any kind of ck with tester I can do to be sure power is going to cluster.
Expert:  Pete replied 8 days ago.

Usually you can test for power and ground at the cluster to be sure this is the cause here.Unfortunately I do not have a diagram of the cluster wiring to say for sure how to test this here.You should have at least one wire with power and one with a ground.In some cases a "tap" test on the cluster will help to identify if the cluster is faulty needing replaced.If you remove and tap on it several times and it starts to work or works even briefly this indicates the cluster needs repaired or replaced.

Let me know if you need anything else and feel free to rate my help here as this is how I receive credit for my time.Your 5 star rating is appreciated

Thanks Pete
