The "gauge panel" or cluster is a common problem with older cars. especially nissans. I would try geting a new cluster because for some reason they tend to go bad quick than other makes, although it could also be a bad sensor on your transmission somewhere.

well I got lucky today I replaced the main fusible link and bingo all the cluster functions seemed to be working now it visually did not seem bad but it was I would say this is a item that should be checked when having some electric issues thanks for the input

Where and what color is this 'main fusible link', please?
