    Brake light, turn signel, and insterment cluster sudenly quit. Raido, wipers, heater ,and lights still work. checked fuses under hood all are good.

    Exact same problem as original poster. When it first started happening it was triggered by turning on the turn signal, the instrument panel would turn off and then turn back on. Now the instrument panel does not work period.

Are you talking about the indicator light that flashes when the turn signal is working? If it is, it's usually the bulb needs replacing.

ABS = ANTILOCK BRAKE SYSTEM
YOU NEED TO SCAN FOR CODES
MAY BE A WHEEL SENSOR OR TONNER RINGS
COULD BE A CHAFE WIRE
BRAKES HAS RESORTED TO OLD SYLE SYSTEM
THAT IS WHY YOU STILL HAVE BRAKES BUT NOT ABS BRAKES

The wiring on a 94 is drasticlly different than that of a 01. The 01 likely has a cluster issue and requires replacement or simple computer updating. The 94 is likely a circuit board issue.
Both vehicles should be taken to the dealer for proper diagnostics.
