Hello and Welcome! I'm Billy and i will assist you with your inquiry. Feel free to ask if any further info is needed.
My apologies for the delay, thank you for your patience.
Were the connectors at the back of the cluster checked? (for looseness, water ingress etc..)?
can you check the alternator output?
do you have any other problems with the vehicle, that might be related, or just this problem?
