Hello I have a 2005 Altima 3.5 SE AT
The ECU and main engine control harness have just been replaced at the delearship, due to a short on that engine harness.

I get the car home and the entire instrument cluster is out. No working lights or gauges to speak of.

Turn signals, AC, stereo, wipers, mirrors, windows, locks, headlights etc.. they're all working.

The only other item I've found to be not working is the electric trunk switch on the front dash.

I've checked every fuse, and the small harness connection at the back of the cluster and those are in tact.

Any suggestions on what it could be?
Please advise and thanks in advance!

Definitely something in the trunk, check your nearest mechanic for more accurate results.
I'm the mechanic-in-training lol. I traced power and ground on the circuit from the back of the cluster harness all the way back to the fuse box. Turned out to be the STEALERship removed the meter fuse for some "unknown" reason and didn't put it back.

That fuse was 1000% in the fuse box when the car was dropped off. So the STEALERship were TOTAL crooks and/or incompetent.
