ahh ok...well Id check the wiring first... then Id bring the cluster inside and connect the gauges to a 12v PSU to rule out the car being the issue.

Good luck.

Yeah, I would check the wiring first

Um . . .make sure you hooked it up to where it should go and double check the fuse to make sure it's not burnt
