While driving, the instruments suddenly die momentarily and then come back on--also the radio. The car runs fine and smoothly--starts well. The check engine light DID NOT come on. This happened abruptly (this morning--Jul 1). We took it to two mechanics (dealer, and private mechanic we trust) and both said it was an "electrical problem" and may involve the instrument cluster. They did not think it was the alternator or the computer. How much could this repair cost be if they are correct? And what else (hopefully simple) could it be?

Additionally, the RAM on the computer and the alternator were recently replaced.
The manual says after three cold cycles the light should go off it's been six cold cycles and it's still on. Now the check engine light is on and neither will go off.
