I cannot seem to get the test to run the reset and units buttons seemed dead as I said before the clock and the trip metre are not working and the buttons do not seem to have any response

ok you will need to do a pin out test on the signals coming into the cluster. Do you have a volt meter?

If all the signals in check good, the cluster is faulty
