    My neighbor gave me a 2003 Navigator in exchange for some work, it has a myriad of issues. There's been some water ingress from the sunroof as it was replace and never properly adjusted, and instead of sealing it up like he should have, he just let it go. Now it seems as though the cluster has died. I get some output from it, like a highbeam indicator and blinkers, but absolutely nothing else. The needles don't even move. I still get a chime though, which I assume is run through the cluster. Would anyone have some insight on this? And before it's said, the fuses are indeed good. Anything else that runs off of the cluster fuses works.

    So as I found out, fuse 15 was blown, that only runs the advancetrac switch and the cluster, I replaced it with another 5 amp fuse and it just blew again. Internal damage in the cluster or a frayed wire somewhere. Does anyone have any ideas?

    Update again, finished chopping out the garbage aftermarket alarm system, after doing all that, the cluster now works, but I now don't have a backlight. This is a step in the right direction. Feels like so close but yet so far.
