Best go back to whoever did your instrument cluster upgrade and have them finish the job.
The front assistant radar has component protection which needs to be matched to your new/replacement instrument cluster.

were abouts are you based. chances are its a coding issue on the cluster. wont be cp as the cluster matches to the car and not the other way so cp would not have kicked in on the radar.

Definitely sounds like component protection but the guy above says not.
One of the reasons I don't do instrument cluster retrofit jobs on Caddy4 is because of the component protection, I don't have the equipment to do it.

Hopefully the previous replier can advise better as I would like to know myself.

how are you switching between clusters do you have access to any diagnostics odis/vcds.

i need to have a look at the fault code with the new cluster connected to assess the issue.

there are a number off issues which can shut down the acc.

if you have vcds let me know and will arrange a time to teamviewer in.
