The cluster is important to the security system. You may have lost key memory. You could call a mobile locksmith to reprogram the keys. They should have the right software. You could also have it towed to the dealer.

You could try disconnecting both battery cables and holding them together for a few minutes. That should clear all the memory from all the systems.
