If your replacement cluster is a used cluster, it might have the same problem, which usually is bad solder points where the main connector connects onto the circuit board of the cluster. If you do some internet searches under Caravan instrument cluster solder you should get lots of sources for instructions and photos of the problem. Sometimes the bad solder points are NOT really visible to the eye, so it's best to put a drop of solder on every one of the points where the connector attaches to the board. That fixed mine. If your cluster is brand new, I don't know what to tell you.

have you got a dimmer switch on your model to dim the dash lights. if you have it may be faulty. link the cables together if the lights work the switch is faulty. if you have not got a dimmer switch
your printed circuit on the back of the dash may be faulty or the plug in the back of the dash is not pushed all the way in. hope this helps

HIT THE DASH! The instrument clusters (gauges) have bad soldering joints. You can hit the dash above the cluster to jar it to connect. A hard hit. Many have this problem, and you are better off taking your instrument cluster out and soldering the connector pins on the back then purchasing a new one or taking from the junkyard. They are all the same, and fail with time if left unsoldered.

This Seems Indicative Of a Poor Connection AT The CLUSTER Or A Junction Connecter Close to the Cluster. This is Assuming you Have Ruled OUT ALL ABS COMPONENTS, LOOK at These VERY CLOSLY Because of the Small Volts These Wires Carry , the SMALLEST DEFECT WILL Cause this Type of Symptom that you have given. Please try all of the Above, I feel Confedint that athis is where your Problem Is.
