Did you disconnect the battery BEFORE the installation?

No I ds not. Before this I have opened it. Because my gauge face on the bottom where it shows the doors are open fell down. So I have opened it before and put it back together and everything was fine, but now it's not. I did try tho to turn of the baterry for a good Half an hour, and it stayed the same. Do I need a whole new cluster, or this one can be fixed. Hope simebody has an answer.

It looks bad mate, but not un-solveable...
I personally think you should have "disco'd" the battery before you took the upgrade on, but you didn't so let's try and fix you up

Firstly, I would disconnect the Battery, and do a FULL re-fit - checking the circuit-board in the dash for anomolies etc... Make absolute certain that you did not disturb any part of the lower end of this board (to me it looks like you did)... Not to worry eh?

Re-fit or remove the clocks and double check ALL connections...

I took it off, and made sure i put it back together and made sure that i did everything correctly. my computer now works, but my gas gauge does not. i think i might have to buy a new cluster of ebay. if i buy a new one, could i program it to match my car and my millage ?

It's possible to reprogram it, it's just a pain to do so. If you don't get it reprogrammed you will have the "tamper dot" showing on the cluster. This will lead a perspective buyer to believe theirs odometer fraud.
