    It certainly shouldn't prevent comms with other systems, but it makes me wonder what other skeletons are in this car's closet.

    My money is still on wiring damage at or near the K-Line junction.

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    I would put money on Bad Cluster and causing K-line short.
    I would disconnect cluster first and see can you communicate with rest of the module.

    NOTE :
    when you disconnect cluster ECu will not communicate and that is normal because communication goes via W-line in cluster.

    Why worry about what cluster will work until you've determined that the one you have is causing this problem? Try what Jetta,97 suggested. Disconnect the existing cluster and see if you have communications with stuff like CCM and Airbags. If you still can't communicate with those modules, then your cluster is not the problem.

    Huh? If you disconnected the cluster and the problem still persists, the problem is NOT caused by the cluster.

    But while you have the cluster out, how about doing a continuity test between pin 7 of the OBD-II connector and the K-Line pin of the cluster harness? A lack of continuity would confirm that you do indeed have a wiring problem.
