Default Instrument Cluster failure

Hi everyone...I'm new to these forums and hoping someone can help me!

My mom owns an '04 Pt Cruiser Limited. For the past week, her instrument cluster stopped lights, gauges, etc. Only thing that works on the cluster are the turn signal lights. I also noticed that the interior dome light doesn't work either. The vehicle starts and runs normally.
Last night, my friend(who's a mechanic) and I spent a few hours checking all fuses, wires, battery terminal, etc. We checked every fuse (interior fuse block and underneath hood) with a voltage meter. I've read about the IOD fuse possibly being the culprit, checked that also. Had no luck.
He thinks it's the cluster itself and needs to be replaced.

Has anyone else experienced this problem?

On a side note...if we were to replace the cluster with a used one...would it work as is or need to be reprogrammed? I'm aware that it may have different mileage.

Addtional info:
automatic tranny, 2.4L non-turbo, non-autostick

Thanks in advance!!
