turn your key off, hold the trip reset button, turn the key to the ON/ACC position. all dash lights should illuminate, and stay illuminated, also your gauges will do a full sweep. If your gauges dont sweep youre going to need a new gauge cluster.

I did that and all the lihts worked but all the gauges did not go through the test cycle. My question now is can i buy a second hand cluster from EBAY or will it have to be from the Dealer if it is VIN specific.
