The instrument cluster on mine is starting to fail, the gauges aren't always accurate, the brake light stays on most of the time even though there is no problem in the brake system the parking brake sensor is good already checked it, and the fluid level is full and the sensor in the master cylinder is good. Due to the cluster malfunction especially at night the interior light will come on and stay on while driving leading to a glare on the windshield and side windows witch makes seeing where your going very difficult, and above the cluster on the dashboard it begins to get hot while driving seems to be a safety issue. While the truck is parked the interior light will come on for no reason. I checked the switch its not that and from what ive gathered its the instrument cluster and the connection on it, the clusters seem to be a weak spot on these trucks ive seen multiple trucks with this problem

Map lights and dome light stay on while driving. Very dangerous driving at night. After parking 15 min later the light will go out. But as soon as you open the doors the light will stay on, day or night.

Sitting in my truck with the key turned or even on idle, the electronics on my dash(radio allumination, trip box, etc.) will be faded on one side or will be completely faded and I cant see the time, station, gas mileage, etc. From time to time when it does this, my cruise control figure wont show but after a while(10-30 minutes) it will pop up on the cluster. It doesnt matter if its cold out or hot out, idle, running or ignition switched off, it will be faded. Its becoming more of a common thing(daily).
