    Yes, it the instrument cluster in a 2001 mitsubishi lancer CE coupe. I'll be driving and all of a sudden it will just turn off, the speedo, tacho, heat, fuel will just drop to 0 and the digital speedometer numbers will shut off.,

    and on hot days it wont even turn on.

    But I can still drive the car as normal.

    Is this an easy problem to fix myself? Or would I need to go to an electrical auto mechanic?

The problem is related to the dash computer that runs the display, electronics of all kinds are affected by heat, you can have this dash repaired through the dealer, or get an exchange assemby. Yes it does not affect the operation of the car.

    You can pull the cluster out yourself I am sure, but it will have to go to a factory repair center to be fixed, do you have a company called speedotach near you?

Instrument cluster illuminates intermittently on 1990 eldorado

If this is the analog intrument cluster and the entire instrument cluster is intermittently losing illumination, remove the instrument cluster light fuse and replace it with a new fuse. It is remotely possible that the actual fuse holder wires have broken due to age and would need to be soldered back together.
If this is the digital instrument cluster and the entire display is going dead, it could be anything from the wiring harness to the BCM. If it is the digital instrument cluster, I can really only recommend taking it to a reputable shop or Cadillac dealer to service.

Intrument cluster

If all gauges cut off, its is likely a power supply problem not the cluster. Try wiggling the rear connector, unplug and re-plug to "wipe" the connections.

You need the Body control module (BCM) scanned for faults, these are BCM related problems, yes they are all computer controlled. Also did you get the new BCM programmed for your vehicle?

If everything keeps going like that then it sounds like its a problem with the onboard computer. The computer controls all the guages and would explain why they all fail at the same time.
