The instrument cluster gets its power/signal from the Body Control Module. I believe it is located behind the carpet somewhere by the passenger foot area. Not saying this is bad, but it's definitely something to check into.

I had read that what you have to do is after you replace the cluster try to start it once. Leave the key in the on position for at least 10 minutes and that is supposed to reset the anti-theft system and it should start and run fine.

Why are the gauges of my 1996 Dodge Ram 1500 all dead?

I had the same problem with my 1998 Dodge Ram 1500. I reseated the instrument cluster and it started working. The whole thing took me 15 minutes and I am not a mechanic. I believe that I removed three screws to enable me to remove the plastic which covers the instrument cluster. I can't remember how many screws hold the cluster down but once you remove them pull the cluster out. It is simply plugged in, and those connections are your problem.
