2002 Infiniti I35 Gauge Cluster Gone Crazy Sign In

I have a 2002 Infiniti I35 and when I started the car this morning, it was perfectly fine. As I was about to go home, I turn on the key and notice the following issues with my cluster...

- Temperature gauge does a full clockwise rotation and then stops at the bottom about an inch from the 'C' marking but goes nowhere after that.
- Speedometer gives about 50-60 kph off reading (checked using waze).
- RPM needle constantly shaking between 0 and 500 on idle.
- Odometer reading is all messed up, almost as if it's trying to form letters.
- Fuel level reads as almost full even though I know for a fact my car isn't near that full.

I tried resetting the battery, taking out the entire cluster and cleaning the connections and that did not work :/

Other than the gauge cluster, the car drives normally as it always does and all other electronics function normally.

I should also mention that cruise control stopped working and the vehicle throws the code P1574 which is the VSS but I don't know if that will cause my cluster to be the way it is? Video below, thanks in advance!

Do you have something like a scope or graphing multimeter that can measure alternator ripple?

Is the odometer's display normal with the key on engine off?

Since we volunteer our time and knowledge, we ask for you to please follow up when a problem is resolved.
