Hi there

 

There is more than one fuse for the cluster ---so lets start there and see if all the fuses for the cluster are good ---ok--- in the fuse box under the hood -check fuse F1.15,

and there are two in the interior fuse box,,, fuse F2.15,,,and F2.21

the best thing to do is turn on the key and check these fuses with a test lamp to see if they have power or not ---

 

tell me what you find , we can go back and forth on this page

Hi Chris..

While waiting for i found interior light, exterior enty lights and radio also not working.

 

I removed fuse F1-15, tested with ohm meter (tested good) and reseated it - all started working...

 

I also had checked F2-17 nd 21 - those were good.
