Does it never go over 13.1? It is not drastic, but not good. Is this with load on? Like lights and stereo, and AC. If that is without load you have issues. And is it 13.1 while driving?

Idle under load, like lights and stereo, you should stay between 13-14.1 max. I am more curious of your voltage while driving, right when the trans failsafe and cluster failure happen.
