Default 04 STi: cluster gauge is dead... fuses?

while trying to clean the dust off the face of the cluster gauge, while engine was running, the cluster gauge suddenly dies.

all the idiot lights, though, work. ditto indicator lights like the HEADLIGHT, DCCD select, cruise control, etc.

speedo, tach, gas gauge, temp gauge, odo and outside temp is out, like when engine isnt running.

also, HVAC control lights are out.

clock is okay. light to radio is okay.

so i think it's a simple fuse. pull out the coin tray with the fuse panel markings.

#12 says ILLUMI and #13 says CLUSTER, IIRC.

so i replace them. nothing.

i buy one of those fuse checker thingees that light up. nothing.

i swap out numerous fuses on #12 and 13. still nothing.

everything else in the car works. headlights, HVAC, radio, cruise control.... everything except the guage cluster.

i check the main fuse panel under the hood too. that one checks okay.

am i missing something else?

thanks...

no.

i just started the car.

while listening to radio, i decided to wipe off the cluster guage with a micro fiber cloth.

i wiped down the face. then BOOM. everything goes dead.

nothing was unplugged or removed.

I think you should just sell to me and that will get rid of your headache.
