Look for the brown wires.

The ground wires are brown in color. According the the wiring diagram, there is a ground behind the instrument cluster. It should have a bunch of brown wires attached to it. This ground does a lot. It is used for the cluster, hazard switch, radio, all the cluster switches and lights, rear defogger, etc.

You probably have a bad connection from the cluster to this ground contact.

Let me know if you want me to send you the ground distribution pages from the circuit diagram.
