gauge cluster warning light

I have a 1984 190d
whenever the battery is connected i get most of the gauge cluster warning lights on with the key on or off. Then when i start it all the lights go out. When shut off again lights come back on. Anyone have a idea what might be causing this? grounds seem find unless im missing one.

should the main gauge cluster plug have power going to it at all times with the key off? two pins have power as long as the battery is connected.

Sounds like your ignition switch is not disconnecting the power.
