Hi took out fuse and which was fine put back

Ok good deal ! That is both good and bad news. Good news is that we now know the fault is internal to the cluster. Bad news is the same. The fault is internal to the cluster. So the cluster will have to be repaired or replaced. There are companies online that rebuild and fix issues in the cluster. That is the best bet as a new cluster from he dealer is expensive and requires initial programming and coding. But there you go man. The cluster is the culprit. Hope this information helps.
