Hardest one to fix yet! Look at what some amateur did to this board. Took me an hour to fix the problems the other guy before me put in the cluster. Left blinker didn't work, glow plug indicator didn't work, the cluster didn't turn (found 2 missing diode) what a mess, I wasn't paid enough for this one.





Suppose to have 2 glass diodes in this position....

An other happy customer, because I fixed it all and LEDed it to top it off in cool white. Nice white diesel Sierra on 35s. I had to get a step ladder to get in.

Just received an other cluster where the guy said he changed the motors now nothing works. Don't know if I want to open this one, I kinda dread what's coming.

His iron was too hot and to big. He destroyed every island on the circuit board except the oil pressure gauge which is the one you see above, but look at what he did with the fuel gauge motor.... I should have taken pictures of every motor for my records but it hurt too much to even look at it. He better keep his day job!!!!
