Is anything appearing in the display at all? Like if you leave your keys in the ignition and open the you get the KEY IN IGNITION warning? If not, perhaps the right button on the cluster is still slightly pushed in from the other day. Press the right button again and see if CHECK CONTROL OK appears in the display.

If you have any Priority 2 warnings...the little "status" triangle symbols will be illuminated on each side of the display and you can keep pressing the right button to clear the display...if you have a PRIORITY 1 will remain in the display and cant' be cleared by pressing the right button.

Once that you've determined that the display is working and alpha/numeric info can still be displayed (and there's no PRIORITY 1 warnings)...then try the programming instructions again.
