Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

It's possible that the instrument cluster was damaged but it's more likely that you blew a fuse. If it was actually a power feed and ground that were jumped in the data link connector then it shouldn't have done anything but blow a fuse. If it was actually a data bus wire for instance that battery voltage was applied to then the instrument cluster could have been damaged.

What were the actual wires that were jumped together?
