so one of two things happened,

  1. a fuse is blown for the cluster
  2. the cluster is shorted out and will need replaced

first thing to do is check the fuse to the cluster and if the cluster fuse is ok check to see if the fuse has power with the ignition on, then if so that means the cluster is shorted. if the fuse does not have power that means that the circuit that powers the fuse may have a fuse that blew . that is where i would start.
