This is likely a bad fuse (since it’s multiple items in the cluster), or a bad connector to the cluster. Check fuses, then disconnect and reconnect the instrument cluster wiring plugs - use electrical contact cleaner as well to clean the contacts. Discontinuing the batter for 10 minutes or so to let the computers in the vehicle reset is a "wild card" move, but it sometimes makes the difference. I would recommend having a Electrical Components are Not Working Inspection completed by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, to diagnose this problem, get an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs.
