Welcome I'm Chris aka Moose
The instrument cluster uses a 10 amp fuse in position 7, 22, and 28. Can you let me know which fuse is blowing?

Thanks, ***** ***** is a 10amp, but it only powers the 4x4 module. This would not effect the instrument cluster. Can you double check that this is the correct fuse.
The new symptoms appear like your describing a dead battery. Will the car start now?
So is it fuse 7 that has the issues?
Okay, remove fuse 7 will it start?
Install fuse 7 will it start?
Does the fuse blow?
Will the engine at least crank?
OKay we are getting there.
Fuse 7 powers the instrument cluster, rear view mirrors, data link connector, audio control module.
The catch is, this fuse is powered all the time so turning the key to the run or start position should not effect it or this circuit.
So at this time are all fuses in place and all fuses good?
With the key on, what is the check engine light and theft light doing?
Will the engine crank?
We need a test light at minimum to continue or a digital volt meter preferably to diagnose this electrical issue.
