Interior electric going in and out

Hello people.... My gauge needles, stereo and power windows go out with a clicking sound. Then I can either hit the dash a few times or it will come back on by its self. I have know idea where to begin looking. Please help thanks

We had a similar issue at work with an '03 F550 7.3L. The dome light would flicker and had what sounded like a relay clicking hard behind the gauges. Turned out the gauge cluster failed and had to be replaced.

Would the bad solder joints make the tach drop out intermittently? And also have the climate control back lighting go out intermittently as well?

I would check it out the grounds that are screwed to the metal framework of the dash. There are lots of them behind the trim for the instrument panel. I would also take a look at all the connections at the battery terminals as well as the fuse able link.
Just rule out everything else before you condem the instrument panel itself.

Good Luck with it.
