Gauge Swap Issue: '05 ST Gauges into '05 ZXw

I just installed a gauge cluster from an '05 ST into my '05 ZXW and everything works great except a few warning lights are now on...

The E_Brake light, the ABS light, and the Traction Control light are all illuminated.

Is this an issue going from a standard to an automatic? Or is there a problem with my brakes? I don't even know if my car has ABS....

Prob. don't have ABS, so that's the reason for ABS/TCS lights.

Not sure on the brake warning. Std. models that's just for the fluid level & E-Brake lever.

Might light with ABS fault, hope someone with that can answer. Had a bad cluster myself with that light on intermittently despite position of control switches.

I think I'm just going to use a little black electrical tape to make the problem go away lol.

Why don't you just pull the light instead of the tape?

The 05-07 clusters have small led's that are not replaceable in the warning lights. Can't pull it.

I looked to see if I have ABS, and I don't, so electrical tape it is.
