I'd guess that the Blue/White and Green wires are swapped. Is the clock abnormally BRIGHT with the lights on at night? If so, the clock isn't dimming, which would tie in with those two wires being swapped.

I'll have to check. Car's battery is toast, so I need to pick up a new one before I can drive it.

I will use your diagram to figure it out - I just hate pulling that cluster out and dealing with those screws that face the windshield. :?
