NO

Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you

the only thing it could be other than a failed instrument cluster is a blown fuse, so you should check fuses and if none are blown, a new cluster will likely need to be installed. It should be fuse 10 in the cabin fuse box but be sure to review your own fuse info to be sure .

Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.

I forgot to mencione the gear is stuck on parking
again check fuses and unhook the battery for an hour. if no fuses are blown then there are component failures that will require parts replacement. As the question has been answered please kindly click on a positive rating
