Dizzy instrument panel non functioning

I recently purchased a '93 SL2. It had some minor problems, and one that I cant figure out. The instrument panel is non-functional, and its not the fuses. The lights work that illuminate the panel, but the tach, speedometer, odo, trip, fuel and heat gauges dont work at all. Before i go drop a substantial amount at a dealer, maybe someone could give me pointer at how i could approach fixing it myself. I am electronically literate so i should be able to achieve the task if its not too involved. Please help me!!!!

Keep in mind the car has TWO fuses boxes. One under teh hood, and another behind a kick panel that just pops of the LEFT side of the passenger side front seat foot well. Provided you have checked BOTH fuse boxes, the main harness plug on the back of the instrument cluster may have come loose. (Although I can't imagine how) or the harness plug running from the PCM to the cluster may be loose/unplugged at the PCM (under the dash drivers side big shiney metal box) or the connector behind the trim panel (left side) in the DRIVER'S side foot well.

Do any of the warning lights at the bottom of the cluster work? If not, as above, I would suspect the connector at the back of the cluster (under the dashtop).
