That'* the starting info. We've seen some that had cluster problems that led to the swapping of the cluster.

I had this issue in my old 94 (that my brother now owns) and we found that if you wiggle the compass button that changes the zone, it will come back on. Im not sure how its all connected back there, but it seems that the switch effects the DIC somehow. Take a look there and see if that helps.
