Re: 1989 240 speedometer & odometer not working.

I was told by the company from which I purchased the gears the following:

"There is a circuit breaker on the circuit board that can become tripped during the and removal and installation of the cluster. There is no way to manually reset this and you will just need to drive the vehicle for it to reset automatically. I have had clients drive for one to two weeks for it to reset but have not had one to date not reset using this method."

Can anyone tell me if this is correct? Does anyone else have any other trouble shooting solutions that I might try? I would appreciate any help.
