1st gen instrument cluster fix!
Hey guys! So i have done alot of research of trying to find a fix for the instrument cluster. Are your gauges reading false? (Temp: pegged hot, fuel: pegged full, odometer: 999,999, tach: bounce: between 0 and 1,000, speedometer: wont read past 15 or 20 mph.) well here is the fix. First of all you need to remove the instrument cluster! Then undo the speedometer from the circuit board and on the back you'll see two(2) transistors. Just unsolder them and solder in new ones. The part number for the transistors at radioshack is: NTE152. They can be picked up for a couple dollars for the both of them. After soldering put cluster back together plug in and install back into dash and then have an awesome, accomplished feeling day! I know there has been talk about the fix on here but never seen a thread with how to do it. Ive seen threads with links all over the internet which are mostly broken. So i wanted to help anyone else who is having this problem. Will try and do a diy this weekend! Have a good one! Good luck! Hope this helps!
