I'd figure that if all the harnesses were correct when you swapped them, then it should be o.k. Since it's not, maybe the 01 cluster wasn't compatible with your 96. Did you have any problems with the swap or was it a "plug-and-play" deal?

Going to have to agree with Nathan though, if you can't find the problem, swap the gauges back.

*EDIT*

After re-reading your OP, you said you sold the truck. Do you currently have the truck or is this a request from the new owner?

the truck is with the new owner,and yeah it was just "plug n play" other than changing the temp gauge because it had a resister,bad thing is I sold the old cluster......sounds like I am "SOL".....
