need help please

Ok, i have a 2005 ST bought it around a month ago and the turn signals blinked sporadically and once the tac/spedo dint work. Since then i got under the plastic knee gaurd thing and shoved (what i thought) were the cluster wires back up toward the steering wheel. It no longer does the signal blinking and the tac/spedo are fine. BUT the battery light goes on/off randomly and it drained a brand new battery in a week. Took the alternator off and took it to a shop and its supposedly fine. All the fuses are good

Take the cluster out, unplug it and plug it back in. Then see if that helps. What did the carfax say?

An auto electrical shop just might be in your future.

The only thing that I can think of is do what I told you and see if it works. While you have the cluster out look and see if you see any bare wires, loose connections, etc.
