FROZEN GAUGES

2003 Mercedes Benz ML500

Electrical problem
2003 Mercedes Benz ML500 V8 All Wheel Drive Automatic 96000 miles

I was driving my ML with a little more punch than usual. I parked it, got out and it sat for about 20 minutes. When I returned and started it, my pre tense fears of buying a used Mercedes came true; the cooling fan kicked in dramatically and unusually loud. The speedometer was lifeless, and the RPM gauge was stuck at about 2000. There was no lighting on any of the gauges, and the odometer and digital clock were blank. Also, the A/C and heating dials werent lit, nor would the fan kick in when the dial was turned. The headlights, signals were working fine. Has anyone encountered this problem? Is it a major fix? Id appreciate any help, Thank- You.
