So with my issues i had with my NB, before i diagnosed the faulty airbag module.....i opened up my dash cluster to see if anything looked damage or lose wires because i had no communications with modules. To remove the electrical board inside i released two tabs

Everything looked OK so i reassembled cluster. after i replaced the faulty airbag module, i started to put my dash together again. after hooking up cluster i turned on ignition, i had no digital display on cluster. I had a spare cluster to hook up and it worked fine. so i thought i must have screwed something up when i opened it up for inspection.

turns out when i put the electric board back, the two tabs were sticking through the board. but the tab was not pulled through all the way so that the center of it springs over to make a connection on the board. so i did that, hooked up cluster again to car.. bingo...it works.

Just thought i would share that bit of info.
