Swapped clusters, now no speedo / odo...

I swapped my stock gauges today for those out of an explorer, with tachometer. After I rolled the miles to what I had on the old ones, I hooked it all up, and lights came on, some in the wrong position, like the check fuel light, which really means door ajar. The gauges said 1995 on the back, and from what I read, from 95-2000 will be a good match to my 99.

The speedometer and odometer do not work now, and that is the problem.

Any help here?

So if I swap the speedo / odo from my old ones to the new ones, it should work, right?

some dummy lights were in different places between 95-97 and 98-01 explorer gauges.. you should have gone 98-01 just to be safe.
