This is the place that does all of my cluster work...Very reliable and does a great job of reconditioning....cannot tell the differance from a brand new unit. They ship all over the world. Check their website here. Company name Advance Auto Electronics (No relation to Advance auto parts)

Thanks i'll check them out

Good chance the problem is in the cluster itself. They can be exchanged with a reconditioned unit.
