An instrument cluster is the collection of gauges, dials and lights right above the steering wheel that tell you what’s going on in your vehicle. Generally, your car’s instrument cluster will last the lifetime of the car and you’ll never have a problem with any of them. However, when one of them fail, you’ll have a problem that ranges from mildly annoying (the engine lights up and doesn’t turn off) to inconvenient (the gas gauge doesn’t register) to dangerous (the oil indicator doesn’t work).
Some of the more common failures include:
Erratic or non-functional gauges & inaccurate readings.
LCD not Stuck or fluttering needles on gauges
Burned out indicator lights
Burned out/dark spot backlighting
Loss of LCD display or erratic operation (number 8 showing as 0)
Rarely can these problems be fixed as a do-it-yourself project. They require specialized tools, knowledge and parts to get them working properly. Oh…and patience, because many of these repairs involve very small parts, motors or electronic components.
