Customer Question

I have a 2012 cat 289c. The instrument panel is not powering up. Had a dead battery, charged battery and now gauge panel will not illuminate or work. I have fire at the switch for the panel. Do I buy a new panel? They are $500 so I would like to be sure

Please post the machine's full serial number and I will research this further. I have not seen this before so, I would like to check for possible related problems before I would say it need the monitor.
