Question about 1997 Chrysler Sebring
Recently purchased and for the first few days, the odometer and the tach worked intermittenly. Now for the past several days, neither has worked at all. This almost indicates either short or an open circuit but after looking for both items in the owners manual and searching Chilton for them on the wiring diagram I can find neither. Can anyone tell me if there is a fuse common to these items and if not, where do I start my search for that "loose connection"?
Remove the instrument panel and you will see two resistors on the circuit board that heated up and turned the circuit board brown. There will be a bad solder joint at one end of one of the resistors. Take a low temp soldering iron and solder the connection and you'll get your tach, odometer and shift indicator back. The whole procedure took me about 1.5 hours!

You have to pull the dash apart and remove the odometer take the back off and solder the broken trace. I have to figure out how to dissapate the heat from the transistors. They get hot and melt the trace.
