Central instrument panel going wild

Hi, newbie here. My 500 instrument panel works well most of the time, but increasingly the central electronic binnacle does an impression of the constantly changing computer screens in the Matrix.

Maybe it's not faulty, and the machines are running it all from a scorched sky future, but I doubt it

I feel like it's worse when it wet, or even just damp (foggy) which implies its earthing possibly. But it's definitely getting worse (as it's getting wetter / colder?.). I've recently had the start stop battery changed and don't think it was doing it before that, everything else seems fine.

Any ideas?

It's a 2011, although only done 13k. Belonged to the proverbial little old lady....
