Angry unknown cluster issue

i have a 06 f350 lariat auto. some days the dash will randomly throw the brake light, four wheel light, and four wheel low range, odometer reading will go away and there will be a non stop solid beeeeep. it randomly happens sometimes it wont at all, when it does i can hit the top of the dashboard hard and it goes away, for how long is unknown, sometimes when it is not happening i can hit the dash and make the symptoms come about. im wondering if you think it is a connection related issue or the cluster is bad. possible broken or weak solder joints or ribbon?? let me know what you think and if i could get a pinpoint test that be great

cluster is bad. Not common but I've probably put more clusters in 05-07 super duties than anything else.

I've always had to do programmable module installation on them. I guess they need configured to communicate with all the other modules in the network
