Cool on board console for info ( MPG, service engine light, etc )

just lost the on board info that lets you know the MPGs, service, etc, changed most of the 5 amp fuses that had to do with the instrument cluster, every now and then when I hit a bump, they will come on and off, I'm thinking a loose connection, removed the instrument cluster but the connections looked good, is there any other fuse that may have to do with this, I also changed a 30AMP fuse from the back, but did not work, thx

Are the fuses that you replaced actually blown?
Is the info panel totally dead or just not showing anything?

Cool

none of the fuses were blown, I don't think the console is out, just the info does not show on it, reason for that, the warning buzzer for the low fuel sounds off when getting too low on fuel, thx
