ok first, remove the 30 amp fuse. never, never use an oversize fuse. you may have done more damage by doing this.

if this issue did not exist prior to the bulb replacement, remove the cluster again and check the connector for any damage or burned pins. also, I believe the connector goes into a printed circuit board.

that board is common for failing.

also, remove the connector from the cluster, and replace with correct fuse and see if the fuse still blows.
