Wait until you have the cluster back and installed properly. The ECM must receive many inputs before allowing an engine to start. On your truck the cluster just may be 1 of those inputs.

On a 2004 chevy tahoe. Once the instrument cluster wire clip is detached and new bulbs are soldered on the cluster. Does the instrument cluster have to be reprogrammed ?

Shouldn't need reprogramming. I removed the cluster from my 04 Silverado and sent it in for repair and replacement of the bulbs. It was out of my truck for 2 weeks. When I got it back everything worked just fine, no problems at all.

Call your local dearship with your vin, and ask if the special policy for the IPC (cluster) appies to your truck. Some of these have a special policy which would mean that you could have it fixed at the dealer for very cheap. Otherwise you will need to have the cluster sent out and it will need to be repaired, it's not very cheap either, and it will need to be programed at the dealership also after it's replaced.
