Hello and thank you for your question, My name is ***** ***** I will assist you today.
The next thing to look at is to remove the headlamp switch so you can access the connector and see if you have power into it from the fuse 18 on the dark blue/white wire into the headlight switch connector and if so, turn the lights on and see if you have power out of it on the lite blue/red wire to the cluster. Check this and post back with the results and we can work from there.
