Probably a radiated imunity problem. Emissions in the spectrum somewhere is causing common mode voltages to occur that causes the instrument cluster to do wierd things. Maybe from a radar of some sort.

I heard of a case the other day where Ford had to buy back a customer vehicle (Navigator) this month because the cluster would totally reset on her way to work. Only on a certain side street and only when going a particular direction. I think this was in Texas somewhere.
