Cluster lights off

My cluster lights don't wanna turn on, all I did was work on my taillights (changed my bulbs). wth happened?

Now also my taillights turn on when brakes are pressed and signal, but not a steady on when headlights are on

My guess!!! U used the wrong type of bulbs. 3157 is the number for the sedan. Cluster not coming on is the warning that both your tail lights don't work.

That's weird because that's the lights I had in there before I put my LED lights in there

What exactly did you do before the problem arose? Did you happen to add a resistor? lol

Maybe they gave you the wrong bulbs. 3056 only has one filament where the 3057 has 2.

I'm on my way to get the bulbs right now. Acoutu what fuse would it be? I'm pretty sure the fuses are fine seeing that the lights actually work. Never hurts to check though

Well let's trouble shoot from a distance....

Does your license plate bulb work? It might be your park lamp fuse (10 amp) located underhood fuse block.
