Instrument cluster problems, Please Help

I have an 05 6.0 Crew Cab Lariet. Lately iv been driving down the road and my dash cluster will reset, the chime goes off and the gauges do a sweep like when the key is turned on. It will do it randomly, bumps dont matter, it will do it idling at a light. It was a now and then thing and hadnt done it for about 3 weeks then yesterday it started doing it fairly frequently. This sucks! No loss of power to anything else except radio but it dosent lose the memory. I figured a loose connection to the cluster so i checked them and it was ok. Any ideas?? Maybe a bad cluster.

There was a post with info on cluster repair service with contact info but I can't find it now. Heres a good description of a cluster removal/repair:

If the radio is dropping out at the same time it could be related to you ignition switch.

Not sure this helps. My dash gages and radio went dead and my interior lights were on all the time. Everything happened at once. I ended up pulling the dash and instrument panel and installed a remote circuit breaker to turn the interior lights off until I could track down the problem. Very dangerous driving at night with interior lights on. It ended up being a bad "delay" relay.

One of the big problems is so many of the modules have been integrated into the cluster module that nearly everything the cluster module can affect.
