    I don't think a 1996 will work ... if the part numbers on the stickers match then it will .. but i think you need a 1997-1999 (matching the year will give you an almost assured compatibility as long as it's not a concourse cluster with the gauges)

    once you get the correct cluster you will need to get your VIN programmed into the new cluster or disassemble them and swap the logic/circuit board that has that stuff programmed on it

    if you choose to not disassemble and just program it i think you need to send it out to one of GMs electronic service centers (ESCs)
    it's best if you can send both the old and the new clusters to them

    Did you swap the whole cluster or just a board? And what board did you swap?
