Okay. I can understand why sears wanted to run (LOL). The first thing I recommend is to check where the clicking noise is coming from. If it is the power distribution box under the hood, it could be something as simple as a relay that fried. Check for evidence of anything that has overheated (since you saw smoke).
Let me know what you find with that. As far as the inst cluster, I have to be honest, they have a history of going bad and needing replaced. However, since the problems happened at the same time, it still may be good.
Check what I mentioned and let me know what you find.
