Is your alternator in good shape? What about the battery?

Well, Hopefully one of the members with a FSM will chime in. Did you check to see if your getting power to the voltmeter? Or to the cluster?

It looks like the power to the cluster comes from fuse 11 and the wire color at the dash is blk/wht.

The altinator is good and every thing else in the cluster is functioning just fine I'm really stumped about what is going on :confused:
