2003 insterment cluster

Been looking into buying this '03 reg cab long bed 4.6. A day or two after I looked at it the owner sent me this video of the gauges not working and flickering a little bit. Is it an easy cheap fix, or do I pass on this deal?

Are you able to physically see the truck?

It might be cold solder joints in the gauge cluster... but it makes me leery that the seller is sending you a video of the gauge cluster not working right.

Swapping gauge clusters is a pain because of PATS.

Then you probably need a new cluster, then have the PATS taken care of. It can cost up to $1k.
