Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced, I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question.

If you're unable to get the cluster to change while following the correct procedure then there may be a failure in the cluster or it's control system. It sounds as if the vehicle should be under basic warranty if you do need a repair.

No vehicle information was posted, what year and model is the vehicle?

What procedure are you using to try to change it?
