Two possible causes for this problem.
1. A bad ignition switch. The ignition feeds power to most of the trucks systems. Try taping on the head of the key with the truck running to see if the cluster goes on and off. If so, replace the ignition in the steering column

2. The dash cluster is bad. There was a recall on these a while ago, not sure if it is still in effect. Call your local dealer, tell them you want to know if the gauge cluster recall applies to your truck and give them the VIN number.
