My instrument panel is a Christmas tree lol

Hi folks. I have a 2008 Mitsubishi Eclipse se and I’m having issues with my instrument clusters warning lights which I personally call a ghost lol For example, my air bag light turns on, along with, abs light, a light that spells BRAKE, service engine soon, opened door light... and when this happened my gauges become inactive. However, this ghost goes away, the lights turn off, the gauges reactivate, and everything is normal for a bit. Then it returns.
This issue doesn’t cause any mechanical problems. She drives clean and smooth.
My battery is new (connections are good) alternator is good. Checked my grounds that I could find in the engine bay. Had my cluster checked and came back with no faults. This car has been to 3 different shops (even mitsubishi) and no one can find the problem
Hmmm. So, anyone else here ever experienced this type of issue ?

I did.

I hit a nasty bump and the plug came loose from the ECU. It didn't come unsnapped, but backed off far enough that it was loose. I would also suggest it could be at the cluster itself, but you've had the cluster out and put back in is my understanding

pcfreak4 has a spectacular aura about
Yes this is definitely a loose connection or loose ground; because your cluster is losing connection to everything all at once when all lights come on and the gauges stop working; used to happen on a lot of Ford Focus’ because they had a factory ground that was bad
