Question about Mercedes-Benz E320

I have a 1997 Mercedes E320 and the instrument cluster guages

I have a 1997 Mercedes E320 and the instrument cluster gauges have all stopped working at the same time. I checked the fuses and all are okay. The odometer, temperature, and clock still work. The lights also work. Periodically, the gauges do work after the car has not been driven for a while. Do I need a new instrument cluster? Thanks,

Guages don't work

That could be the cluster gauge assembly itself and it may have bad connections on its circuit board or the body control module that controls the cluster gauges has a problem.

The car in question is a 1996 Mercedes Benz E320. Not a 2005 E320

First I think the there is poor contact on the plug behind the cluster, but when I see your mention about the needle shaking then I think it needs to replace. I just check on ebay selling for $99 and it is a good price. It is easy to replace. Once the instrument can be pulled out, there are only 2 things to be disconnected: a speedometer cable can be unscrewed and a big plug for all electrical connection to be pulled off. Good luck.
