no......... the only light that comes on is the air bag light and it stays on

This either means you have a wiring/connection problem or instrument cluster has failed. Next step is removing cluster and checking connector condition and power/grounds at cluster. It is about a $500 job to have replaced at the dealership. Here are instructions to remove so you can inspect connector, let me know if you have more questions, thanks Tom.
