Greetings again,and thank you to Steve who tried to help.This is an update to my previous post.Checked every fuse in the box,replaced the relays.All electrics work except cluster main lights.In the dark you can see just four green boxes for a second when you switch on.Ford say no codes.Usually starts up after a few days,and goes without fault.This time it appears terminal. Any ideas will be welcome.

I would first check for power at the plug to your cluster this will tell you if it,s a power feed issue or the cluster .then follow the wiring to the next junction connection and carry out continuity test on each power wire to ensure no breaks .you will require a wiring diagram to fault trace this.If this vehicle is networked it could be something else that is bringing the network down a wiring diagram would tell you this also.If it is running a network there could be a short which is bringing down the power level .I do not want to go too in depth .as like I say the correct model year diagram will tell you and just try following the wiring to source firstly.
