1997 Saab Instrument Cluster Stops Operating

I bought the car used after insurance totaled for front-end damage (radiator and other systems not affected). Instrument cluster (speedometer, tach, temp, etc) stops working for longer or shorter periods of time, then comes back on. Does not appear to be affected by weather, temp, etc., although bumps will sometimes cause cluster to stop working.
