All of the warning indicators are LED. There is a cluster self-test that you can perform by having the ign key in the Lock position, press and hold the trip odometer button and roll the ign key to Run. Release the odo button and the cluster will actuate the lights, gauges and VFD segments. The cluster will light the LEDs if it possibly can.
Have a pen and paper handy to copy any codes down that may appear in the odometer display.
If this is a used car, I have found snipped LED leads to keep warning lights from illuminating. Usually to hide an expensive problem from a subsequent owner. Get the PCM/TCM, Airbag, ABS and cluster (CCN) modules scanned for fault codes if no codes appear in the cluster odo display.

'3-61' isn't a fault code. It may be a cluster software version or revision number. Certainly nothing that can help here.
Since the warning lights didn't light with the cluster test, this means that the problem is in the cluster itself. Nothing external.
If you can remove and disassemble the cluster to a point where you can see the LEDs, make sure that some previous owner didn't snip a lead to keep the light off in order to mask a bigger problem.
if you can scan the modules for fault codes, you may find some stored in memory or active and un-erasable. This may be why someone would cut an LED lead or remove it.
It would be illegal for someone knowingly to sell a vehicle with tampered or disabled safety/emission components here, if this is the case.

I very nice LX car collection!
The wife and I have been looking at a base black-on-black 2005 2.7L 300 for touring. While not a Hemi, the looks, quietness and control of the car are impeccable.
