You first need to remove the instrument cluster and check the connections on the back of the cluster .

clean the plugs with contact cleaner and replace and test ,

If still having the same problem the the cluster will need testing and repairing.

In most cases the cleaning of the connection on the back of the instrument cluster does the trick .
