I was getting ready to explain the problem with my cluster, but when I shut the car off the lights all went out like they are supposed to. My only guess is that there is some type of capacitor in the cluster which was run down from having the battery disconnected for 2 weeks. Oh well, all is well in any event, looks like my shop didn't know what they were talking about.
Good to hear. I was also thinking that sometimes it takes several drive cycles to reset/clear. Whatever the cure was, glad it's fixed.
