you either have a issue with power or ground to the instrument cluster or the cluster itself is at fault

I agree, either a loose connection or a bad ground connection somewhere. Find the ground wire and install a new ground wire to eliminate that possibility.

Sounds like my experience. Two trips to dealer they did nothing. A mechanic replaced my ignition switch($30) part, $60 labor , my problem solved.
