so my cluster has been acting up for a while now, lighting itself up all the time without running lights on. finally it said **** it! smoke started rolling out of my dash, the blue connector melted itself to the cluster, and the insides all melted. the car still started and ran fine with the burn cluster still in, but as soon as i removed it, it wont start anymore. i got a new cluster and put it in along with a new blue harness, the cluster was fine at first, it dinged when the door was open, needles all moved etc. after a minute, nothing. the only thing that works are the engine light, abs light etc. also my fuel pump isnt getting any power. i replaced the ignition switch and the relay, still nothing. if i hook power up directly to it, the car starts no problem, but the gauges still wont work. any ideas?
