I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.

the only things that can cause just the cluster not to work are:

a) blown fuse
b) bad connection at the cluster or wiring problem to the cluster
c) internal cluster failure (requires replacement

if you have not checked your fuses, I suggest you do, and also check the connections at the cluster.

if nothing is found, you unfortunately will need to have a new cluster installed as this would indicate failure. Not terribly uncommon.

Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.
