The most common causes are a break in the circuit board inside the cluster, or the connector for the wiring harness on the back of the cluster.

Instrument cluster black


If you have the 3-Panel Digital Cluster, with the Fuel on the Left.., Speed in Center.., and Odometer on the Right.., and the Cluster is going Wacky.., works one minute then craps out the next.., take the dash apart and remove the Digital Cluster. Take your time when unplugging the harness behind the cluster, use a mirror if you have to.., to unplug it correctly.

The problem with this Digital Display is the Solder Connections.., at the 14-Pin IC Chip.., which is directly behind the Odometer Display on the main Circuit Board. When you get the Cluster removed.., again.., take your time.., and take the cluster apart.., so you get the main circuit board out. The 14-Pin Integrated Circuit (IC) Chip is marked with an IC2 on the main board.., which as mentioned is behind the Odometer Display. The IC Chip is usually Black in Color.., and is '@' 1/4" x 3/4" You will need a Soldering Iron.., @ a 30 watt with a pointed tip.., don't use a Soldering 'Gun'., too hard to use and too hot.., you don't want to cause yourself more problems by messing up the board circuit tracks by overheating them.., so it's best to use a smaller iron. It is a good idea to have some fine strand solder on hand.., but you should not need it.., all you want to do.., is to 'Re-Tin'.., or 'briefly' melt the Solder at all 14-pins of the IC Chip.., on the back side of the board.., to Re-Flow or Re-Solder the Connections of that 14-Pin IC Chip to the Circuit Board. That's all it is..!!!

I just repaired my 1991 Olds Cutlass Supreme 3.1.., 3-Panel Digital Instrument Cluster in this manner.., and it has been "Perfect" for a month now..!!

Take your time.., get it all back together.., and my bet is that it will be good to go for many more years to come..!!

Good Luck.

2004 Chevy Trailblazer - instrument panel works fine except the digital odometer reading went out and does not display anything?


You will have to have the cluster repaired. If you are handy, you can take the cluster out yourself. There a number of vendors on Ebay who repair clusters.

Instrument panel in 2001 Ford F150 went out. How


If you are talking about the odometer display does not show numbers, here is a detailed instructions on where to find the cold solder joints at :
http://www.f150online.com/forums/electrical-systems/373597-intermittent-odometer-repair.html

This is if the cluster lighting still works, but the display is blank. Don't know if you mean the gauges in the cluster do not work.

Instrument panel went dead


Checked Every fuse in the fuse box (no small task).This includes #4 - Power point Instrument Panel, #14 - Day time running lamps (auto lamps doesn't work nor does auto lock), #27 - ignition switch run feed, #35 - Instrument Cluster, #41 - Instrument Cluster, #42 - Delayed Accessory, #45 - Ignition switch run/start feed, #102 - Door locks body security module, #103 - Ignition switch, #110 - Ignition switch, & #116 - Ignition switch. But I also check all other ones as well, they all register OK. AC panel & radio work. Turn signals work. Mileage does not work, trip computer does. So, basically, everything works except auto head-lights, auto locks, and the dash cluster (no MPH, RPM, mileage display, Fuel, Temp, Tran Temp, and Oil Pressure).
