Hi, and welcome. My name is Marty. It sounds as though you may not have fully seated the connectors to the cluster. I would first check all of the fuses and make sure none are blown then I would remove the cluster and recheck the connections.

eurotec :

Fuse 3 and 37 power the instrument cluster.

Let me know if you need more help with this.
