Expert:  Lou P. replied 1 year ago.
Ok thank you. What about fuses 31 and 26
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I rechecked all fuses again 12.2 across the board and at gauge cluster
Expert:  Lou P. replied 1 year ago.
Ok perfect. I appreciate that. Fuse 36 and fuse 26 are your powers for the instrument cluster at pins 1 and 14 and your ground is pin 6. If you have all of those correct then your cluster needs to be replaced.if the cluster had failed it will not allow the vehicle to crank or start due to the key signal goes through the cluster.
