Gauge weirdness

Recently I've notice some odd stuff happening with my dash gauges.
The tach and speedo drop to "0". And, the Airbag light comes on. Everything else is fine.
It eventually returns to normal. But, it's a bit disconcerting.
Any ideas on what would cause it and, a possible fix?

Lose connection behind the instrument cluster. Common problem. Use the search and you'll find plenty of threads discussing.
