Electrical problem V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 37000 miles

Intermittent gauge operation. All gauges drop to zero and then return. Conditions: The vehicle is traveling on a straight and level dry paved road @ 55MPH. Ambient temp approx 57 degrees.

Not to unearth any "rabbit holes" to chase down but here are some additional observations that may or may not apply: Hear what sounded like clicking from behind or under the dash. I noticed the airbag light was lit on the instrument cluster when the needles dropped to zero.
Do you

Hello,

It sounds like you have a bad connection at the cluster. Please remove the connector at the rear of the cluster and reconnect, this will clean the connections and get the cluster working again.

Here is a wiring diagram so you can check the grounds and power supply to confirm.

Please let us know what happens.
