Try rapping on the dash above the cluster. There are two solder points that go bad on the cluster circuit board. They can be repaired usually.

Thanks for the reply I went out in the morning put the key in and everything worked so I think it must be a short somewhere.
Thanks again

Hi Carole,

It's not a short, but an open.
