This problem could be a few different possible causes. One of which would be a faulty instrument cluster or power distribution center. YES, start by checking all of the fuses and do the battery reset procedure and go from there. If the problem remains, the cluster may need to be replaced.

I am glad I can help! Keep in mind this is a "starting point". My goal is to give you the best experience possible! I hope I have earned a 5-star rating!
