Instrument cluster misbehaving

I have a problem with my E46 .the fuel gauge indicate the fuel is full even when its empty and my gear shift gauge is not even lighting up while the clock and the millage meter shows only PPPP and nothing else. I have checked the fuses and they are all well. What is this ?

That is a dead cluster. It needs to be replaced. I repair clusters and when it displays PPPP I won't work on them.
