Premium Member. No working gauges, no AC compressor or turn signal lights on the cluster does sound like the cluster is bad, but, a bad cluster should not cause intermittent no start. The car will start and run fine without the cluster. Get the cluster fixed and then you will be able to continue diagnosing the car.
