SOURCE: instrument cluster dead
If your replacement cluster is a used cluster, it might have the same problem, which usually is bad solder points where the main connector connects onto the circuit board of the cluster. If you do some internet searches under Caravan instrument cluster solder you should get lots of sources for instructions and photos of the problem. Sometimes the bad solder points are NOT really visible to the eye, so it's best to put a drop of solder on every one of the points where the connector attaches to the board. That fixed mine. If your cluster is brand new, I don't know what to tell you.

Well if you checked all of the fuses, then most likely the wire harness that is plugged into you gauge cluster from inside the dash either came loose or your gauges cluster is faulty and blew out. I would check to see if that wire harness came loose and if it didnt then your probably going to have to replace that whole gauge cluster. Check around on ebay then are pretty cheap on there.

SOURCE: no bus on my instrument cluster
(bus) = the connection between your cluster and the computer. If the
truck starts, clean your ground connections and unplug the harness from
the gauge cluster. In simplest case there is a connection that is
rusted/ corroded/ or not tight enough.
(headlights) may have a delayed shut off followed with an automatic turn on sensor

Follow the positive battery cable from the battery to a junction,or to the starter,see if there is some fusible links connected there that might be burned out,the dash lights ,is most likely the head light switch,you can find the dash light fuse,and you will find there is no voltage to it,then you can run a wire,from a fuse with power on it,only with key on,this will make them work every time the key is turned on.
