With the ignition on move the PCM harness at the PCM connector. Does the check engine light come on? If so, carefully inspect the wiring and connector that plugs into the PCM. If not, check the check engine light fuse. Is it blown? If so, instrument cluster is most likely shorted or wiring is shorted. HTH. -Jim

It's very possible then that the PCM is bad. I doubt that the info button not working would cause this issue. I believe that would be controlled by the BCM (Body Control Module). When replacing the PCM on an OBD II vehicle, such as yours, it must be flashed using your vehicle identification number. This will program the new PCM to your specific vehicle. Otherwise it will NOT work. HTH. -Jim
