Instrument cluster blank

For a while the digital display for the speedomneter would fade out. hitting the top of the dash fixed it for a while. Now the whole thing is dead.I suspect a cracked foil run on the curcuit board. Would be helpful if I had a pinout of the board connections. the speedodmeter works but the fuel gauge doesnt

    I have a 1992 GMC Jimmy with the same problem only it was the speedometer and the odometer that faded away. I kept the display alive for about 6 months by beating the dash but it finally decided to die on me. I am looking for a new instrument cluster.

Don't throw away the dash yet!!! I had the same problem with my 93 S-10 Blazer. My son in law(who is a computer guru) took a look at and found several loose solder spots. He redid them and it has been working fine ever since. Check around for some one who would take a look at the soldering on the board and I am sure they can fix it right up. Good luck KS

2006 Nissan Quest has digital odometer and gas gauge and they fade out all of the time. Does anyone know what causes the problem and how to fix it?


Its a faulty instrument cluster...go to this youtube link to see one way to fix it...
http://youtu.be/s1_FVOVj2ms
"REPAIRING THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER DISPLAY/ODOMETER"

There are other videos you can find on youtube as well. I found one that showed how to get the panel out in order to fix it and there were some videos that offered to repair it if you shipped it to them. I think they wanted to charge $200 so maybe you'll have luck fixing it using the link above.

Chevy cobalt 2008 insturment panel light out; replaced fuse # 27 did not fix it


it is the instrument cluster. I replaced many working in the dealership. sometimes hitting the cluster or the top of the dash pad would make them go off and on but not a exact test.

Dash instruments go out 99 dodge caravan


The first thing to do is reach up (if possible) behind the cluster and make sure the plugs to it are fully inserted, push them in or remove and reinsert if possible to reach them. If that doesn't fix the problem the entire cluster must be removed and then sent out for repair to a shop that repair Chrysler electronics.

Digital mileage display


There is an issue with some MYs that the digital odometer goes blank on the 99-03 MY trucks.

The problem is with cold solder joints on the Instrument cluster.

F150online has a how to in the electrical forum, that shows where to look for the cold solder joints.

If you are hand with taking apart a dash, and using a soldering iron, then it is a bit time consuming, but cheap to fix.

The dealer will want to replace the Instrument cluster, and reprogram the HEC with your keys ( the PATS part ), which would be 600+ to have done.

Digital dash lights on 2001 Mercedes CLK 430 CONVERTIBLE


these displays ared l.c.d. displays and what happens is over time the vacuum pack on the crystal element ruptures and get air in the tube and that part of the display is ruined permanently.I'm not sure if your saying that there are pieces missing or if the whole display is blank. If there are peices missing the only way to fix it is to repkace the instrument cluster. If they are blank it is very likley it is either the backlighting bulb or the dimmer switch. If you take a blanket and cover your display and can see the display very dimmly try replacing your back lighting bulbs- hopefully it is just your backlighting because the clusters are about 1,000 dollars and have to be special ordered with your mileage engraved in the new unit.

Instrument cluster not working


no other way to solve it but replace it, sad thing is no second hand clusters available (in Manila). Purchase directly from your Mercedes Benz dealer. This will solve your problem, in a quite costly way.

Faulty control/instrument panel


I had a problem with my instrument cluster on my 1999 dodge caravan went out. If you hit the top of your dash right above the cluster and it turns on or off then It is a cheep fix if you do it yourself. You take out the gauge cluster by removing screws from the door end of the dash. It is really simple. take out the gauge cluster and unplug it. Look at the plug end that is on the gauge cluster and look were it is soldered into the circuit board. If you look close you will see one or two pins where the solder joint or joints is/are cracked in a circle around the pin. Add some flux and apply heat with a stick type solder gun and it will be fixed. Now reassemble and you just saved 500 dollars minimum.
