Question Dash Cluster question

I think I have a unique question that I havent been able to find anything on so far. I had to replace my dash cluster on my 97 528i why you ask, in Virginia to get a state inspection all accessory lights especially airbag light must come on and go off well mine wouldnt come on at all so believe it or not my car fell inspection. I took out the cluster to see if it was a burned out bulb long story short I dropped it and damaged the gas empty/full gauge so I decided I needed to buy another one. I purchased one from ebay with close to the mileage I currently have maybe 7k difference. When I installed it all of the accessory lights lit up and would not go off some lights I didnt even knew existed. But the airbag light did light up on this one but also stayed on like the rest even the temperature gauge go right into the red when all the lights come on and stay there. So this is were my problem is getting the lights to reset. Ive own this car for 5 years and have never had but my service light come on so Im wondering why would all of them come on now are they stored up codes from my car or was something that happen because this cluster is from a different car and could have it been stored in memory from other car it came from. The accesory yard I bought it from sent along with the cluster the LCM which I had to read up on. I didnt change that only the cluster so if someone could give me some direction what I need to do the knowledge would be greatly appreciated.
