I have a 99 ml430 when I bought it I noticed the gauge needles would flicker up and down every time I turned the key on and off but only for a few seconds then they were normal I noticed one day after I filled the tank the inside light and the whole cluster gauge was not working.

Please help thank you :-)

Bring her in and have it checked with the dealership- you have a short circuit causing it-where? Dunno-could be the I/P cluster itself
