Default 2003 Acura RSX Gauge cluster is not working. Brake light stays on without being engaged.?

My 2003 Acura RSX gauge cluster is non-operational. Speedometer, Tachometer, odometer, fuel gauge, and temp gauge do not work. Also there is no back light. My brake light stays on even when I disengage the brake. I have checked the fuses and tried the self test and nothing seems to work. If anybody has any insight to what might be the problem or any tip on how to nip this problem in the butt, please let me know. Thank you

Make sure the fuses and the slots they slide into provide a snug fit between the two and make sure there is no corrosion causing the circuit to disconnect.It sounds like you have a ground wire loose,broken,shorted,or corroded and not making connection.The self test that checks for trouble codes in the computer has to at least list one code,which is the code to show that the system passed.Its different depending on the model of car.The code for my mustang is 1 or 11.If at least 1 code doesn't show,the computer isn't communicating with the diagnostic test port.Check the eec relay or power relay.Its the relay for the computer.There is also 1 or 2 grounds for the computer itself.Locate and verify condition.Brake fluid could be low,brake sensor installed on brake reservoir bad,or possibly brake light switch attached to brake pedal bad.Check fuse for brake system too.
