Re: Instrument Cluster Failure

I got off of work today and rushed home to install the new cluster I ordered. I put it in and put everything back together... and it works! So I’m pretty happy about all of that. Thanks for all of your input!

Re: Instrument Cluster Failure

Something else I just noticed is that my clock is staying on constantly now, and the clock is the only thing that works other than the boost gauge. It’s odd to me that the clock will appear, but the info screens will not. The boost gauge is mechanical and I assume the clock would normally be showin...

The only way to fix the issue or at least to find out if it' just a bad cluster....is to replace it with a used unit.
And that’s what I’ll try. Any recommendations as far as finding a reliable source on one?

Re: Instrument Cluster Failure

It might be a good idea to check the connector at the ABS control module and the connectors going into the back of the instrument cluster. If they're loose, corroded or damaged they could cause the gauges to stop working. Something else I just noticed is that my clock is staying on constantly now, ...

Re: Instrument Cluster Failure

It is definitely applied during manufacturing. Seen it plenty of times over the years. Not seeing it on others might be due to the rolling changes often made during production. Such as, it's been discovered these sections need corrosion protection. Okay I gotcha. Thanks for clearing that up. Not to...

Re: Instrument Cluster Failure

That looks a factory applied conformal coating. If you take a closer look, it’s been used around of the surface mounted capacitors and resistors It’s used as protective layer. That’s odd, I’ve looked at pictures of other 850 clusters and didn’t see the same coating. But if it’s intentional, then th...

Re: Instrument Cluster Failure

I have a 1993 940 that had a wonky fuel gauge that was intermittent, and things went downhill from there. I pulled the instrument cluster and resoldered (heated and added a bit of new electronics solder) all of the connections. Everything started working again. The heat/cool cycle and hidden corros...
