Ok, you have 3 fuses that one of them could? be the problem. you should not just look at them but swap them out.If the problem persists after changing fuses? you then likely have a bad cluster. the cluster is a sort of logic module and circuits within could have failed. So do the fuses I have listed. I am hoping fuses issue but no promise then it would need a cluster Fuses are:

Mall / Cluster

Cluster Batt

Ign 1

All of them are in the fuse box on right end of dash

Here is the attachment showing fuse locations
