Here is a fix...I had the same problem with the instrument cluster going dead intermittently. Pound your fist on the dash and wahlah, everything worked again. It would also register an engine code of 'invalid or incorrect information or lost data', something like that. What I found was a hairline crack in a solder connection on the cluster circuit board right at the harness plug connector. Mine happened to be the ground pin for the cluster. And what do I mean by 'hairline' crack? It takes a trained eye to find cracks in solder connections. Most people don't see them, because it is a circular microscopic crack surrounding the pin where it solders to the board. It it usually caused from heating and cooling, vibrations, and other element that attack and deteriorate solder. Very intermittent, and very hard to find. So instead, just simply resolder each of the connections to be sure another one won't fail in the near future.

One problem may be the orange bulb check. It's located next to the headlight relay on the driver side under the hood next to the fuse box. It's in a covered box too. The soldering gets tiny cracks from age/vibration. Needs to be replaced. Try ebay or your $aab dealer.

it sound as if the problem is in you switch and you will need a puller to get the steering wheel off also take the negative side off the battery before you start and remove the fuse for the air bags as well if you have a library near you there you can get all of the pictures and diagrams so you can do the job easier
