Look on the bright side - at least it wasn't a fairmont or XR cluster you fried. Looks like the odo light tracks are frazzled, so they can be jumpered pretty easily - two lines to the plug.

On the downside, you may have fried something in the BEM as well - fix the cluster first.
Plenty of std clusters on Ebay all the time, or someone may have a spare.
Only pain is you have to transfer the odo Eprom across.

Same happened to me. one of the lights had a earth back aka a short.

just find the two ends and either solder the thing back or cut a lenght of wire and do it that way.

and check your resistance on the leds. maybe drawing too much current and that
