Pull the cluster and check the connectors for corrosion or oxidation. Make sure the pins are tight, spray contact cleaner on the connectors. I use the cleaner from Wurth, but i heard that Radio Shack makes a good one. If this doesn't do the trick, probably the cluster itself( can be rebuilt if needed) HTH
