Just recently, my speedometer, temp guage, and Odometer stop working. Everyone now and then, one, the other, or all will begin functioning normally. I had a a bad corroding battery connection wich caused low power to my car at idle (dimming head lights, dimming instrument control lighting, etc). My battery/power issue has been resolved. I spoke with a mechanic and he mentioned it could be a short or the cluster may need to be replaced. He also mentioned that this is something only a dealership can service. Is this true? Is this my actual problem?

Tech is right it is the cluster and no dont go waste your money at the dealer they cant help with this problem. Sounds funny right. Get online to a company Mr. Whizard technical service. Its in canada but they fixed mine for $199 shipping both ways. Its a bread board inside that goes out and is impossible to find one in the junk yard. I tried for six months.
