My instrument cluster is dead. The fuse is fine. What else should I check?

(1998 Lexus LS400)
in Lafayette, CO on June 30, 2012
Everything was working fine until my battery died. I jump started it and everything was fine again except that the instrument cluster is dead - none of the gauges move at all and there is no light. I checked the computer using a car doctor device diagnostic code and it indicated the car was fine.

Possibility that more than one fuse in the problem circuit did you check all or just one(s) labeled gauges or instrument cluster.

All of the fuses were fine. The problem actually turned out to be a problem with the positive battery cable connection. There must have been a short or bad connection and when I cleaned up the connection and the battery post, the gauges started working again. Thanks for the response.
