The instruments (speedo, rev counter, odometer and oil pressure) suddenly zero and then recover as well as ignition and engine warning lights coming on. This is random and not linked to any other events. There is no loss of power or malfunction of any other sort. I would like to know the cause and the solution.

Hi the codes are present , I have cleared them , and they come back , the 1482 , code seems to be for the radiator fan , and the code 2107 for electrics to my instrument panel I believe , because as I am driving the rev counter and speedo and oil , all the needles go to zero , they start working intermintanyly with the orange spanner light flashing on
The instrument cluster is a hybrid electronic cluster (HEC) with two basic configurations, the base cluster and the optional instrument cluster. In addition to the two basic configurations, the SVT uses a modified optional cluster in combination with a separate oil pressure and oil temperature cluster. The base instrument cluster, optional instrument cluster and the oil pressure and oil temperature cluster receive and output information utilizing both hardwired circuitry and the standard corporate protocol (SCP) or the controller area network (CAN) communication network (2.3L only).
It is very important to understand:
where the input originates from.
all the information necessary in order for a feature to operate.
which module(s) receive(s) the input or command message.
does the module which received the input control the output of the feature, or does it output a message over the SCP or CAN network to another module?
which module controls the output of the feature. Its more then likely you need a new instrument cluster.
It sounds like tach is wornout, but you'll need to remove the instrument cluster to replace it. You'll need to reach in behind the speedo from above, to remove the speedo cable, before it can come out. Change the LED while you have the cluster apart.
