Difficult one this,can only take a guess.There may be a break in the instrument cluster printed circuit so that there is no 12v feed to the guages,then when lights are on the power to the panel lamps is starting the gauges up. Also,there could be a damaged/bent connector on the instrument multi-plug giving the same result.
