Not sure if my experience will be useful to the OP, but, when I had a bad cluster, here's the procedure I followed to resolve:
- One user's experience debugging a half-dead instrument cluster (1) which, after testing the fuses (1) battery & alternator (1) thankfully turned into an alternative battery search (1) and a simple battery replacement DIY (1)

I'm not sure about the LCM since I've never experienced a failure - but maybe the OP may benefit from one of these?
- How to repair (1) (2) or replace (1) your light control module & where to get new LCM chips (1) (2)
Please read the suggested threads, where the best always add value to those threads, either by pictures or by descriptions, so the next person with the same problem stands on your shoulders.
