I’m having an issue with the cluster on my 2017 Ram 2500. I’ve been noticing that while driving the cluster lights turn off and on and the gauge on the battery flexes from halfway to 3/4 and then drops back down to a half again and the radio kicks on and off.I had the battery checked out, the battery is fine. I also had the alternator checked and that is fine. Any ideas?

Ground wire comes to mind, check to make sure all are tight connections and that there isn't rust preventing a good connection.

So I took apart all the connections and cleaned them with a sanding wheel on my cordless drill and sprayed them with battery cleaner and protector. Went to start it up apparently I missed a bolt as the truck was dead, found the problem which in fact it was a ground wire as you stated. Thanks for the help
