gauge cluster problem

I bought a new cluster for a cheap price because the buttons broke on my original cluster. So what I did was switch the gauge from my original cluster into the new casing of the cluster i just bought so that I would have it installed with the operating buttons. After installing my DCS light is constantly lit and the yellow brake light is staying lit. Ive messed around by taking the cluster out before and never had this problem, any ideas to what happened this time, becasue I still have the original cluster in the car.

I believe there is some "coding" or "programming" that the new cluster may need to have a proper install. I do not think that part is a 'plug and play' part.
