Odometer not working

Hey guys. Last night on our way home from my grandparents place, I noticed that the truck was periodically trying to lock the doors. Like it does when you first start the truck and start driving. Anyways, tonight I hopped in the truck and noticed that the odometer display is not working at all. No odometer, no compass, no temp, no nothing. On the way home I noticed it was back on. When I got into the driveway it was off again. Any ideas? Battery is original maybe that's it? Instrument cluster toast?

VMP and 5-Star tuned no more

Could be the battery, I know when mine wouldn't keep charge anymore the cluster wasn't working or would flicker the needles.

Lightning strike, or demonic possession. Trade or exorcism right away, depending.

I retract my previous statement and am currently supporting this solution

Can't afford to trade. Owe too much. I talked to my mechanic (ford tech) he thinks its the cluster. $500 plus tax and a reflash to get it swapped Not a happy day
