Gauge cluster gone haywire

Recommended Posts

Yesterday I removed my gauge cluster on my 02 C4S to run my Valentine 1 cable behind it. Well after pluging everything back in the cluster started to go haywire with indicator lights. The control arm for the PCM is not operation as well now. I rechecked the connecters on the back side of the cluster to be sure twice. Just seeing if anyone has any sudgestions on what's wrong before I take it to the dealer. I checked for codes but there are none didplayed on the OBII pocket scanner. The car runs as normal. The speedometer, rpm, battery meters are working but the gas, oil pressure, and temp sens gauge are not working. Basicly everythying on the right side of the instruments are not moving. Here is a video. I hope it works I'm not to good at the whole upload thing.

Update...thank you for the responses. Well I did disconnect the GC before I disconnected the battery. This morning I disconnected the battery and rechecked the connectors again and they are connected. Here is a video of the car running w/GC still a blitz. I guess maybe I did fry the electronics...unless you guys have more suggestions on things I should try. If I get another GC will it have to be programed by the dealer? or will it be plug and play? Sorry for all the questions. I'm frustrated and kicking myself for picking with it. This car has been rock solid compared to other cars I've had. Never had any problems and I still love driving it. Video loads in a couple of seconds...had the cover over the lens.
