Prndl fixed

My gear selector display only really worked on humid days if at all. I did struggle with the 2 bottom clips. But I did get it all apart. I flipped the board and noted the discoloration but i was unable to determine the joint responsible. I just began soldering all the joints in the area. I found one mid way through that when melted the other side gave way and the heatsink slid across the board. but it did infact work. I didnt mark the needles because I plugged it in before reassmbling. the guage cluster resets every time you pull the plug, then I started the truck. I noted where each guage usually is when running and was able to fine tune the needles. I still have lights to replace. But that's a much bigger job since almost all of my dash is burnt out. Heater controls and radio and it looks like my guage cluter is missing more than just the one I knew about.

Is it the DS19 area that you are talking about? Your truck is in that generation where they had a lot of problems with the instrument cluster. There are a lot of outfits that do nothing but repair them. I think the affected years are 2003 to 2006.

Glad you got yours up and running again. Good luck with the lights.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, it is an electrical problem
