I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.
Even if you are on a subscription plan with multiple questions, you must still select a positive rating to credit your expert for his/her time, although you will be charged nothing additional beyond your subscription rate.
Thank you for your attention to the rating requirement.
If no fuses are blown then unfortunately this can really only be an internal fault with the cluster, which will require it be replaced.
You can check connections at the cluster, but there is no reason these would be an issue.
Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.
