I found someone who refurbishes them. Here are some pics.
Does anyone know the purpose of the light bulb that my finger is pointing to in the last photo?
Who you having do the refurbish? (If you don't mind me asking) I was looking at Instrument Specialties. A little more money then most, but they are a one stop shop for the Cluster, Pad, and Trim.
Make sure if you use them to allow about 3 times the timeframe quoted. Really nice work, though.
I think I had them do my clock thats not working anymore. HMMMM just saw they have a 10 year warranty, let me check my records...
Red Line gauge and Clock repair did my Tach and my clock (quartz) in 2009
its lights up the wipper and radio area SMALL PLACE IN DASH PANEL it shines down thru
There is also a light at the HVAC switch and at column shift indicator.
Are you trying to stay original?, hence the refurb?
The socket looks to be the shifter quadrant one...took three tries to get it in properly, but once in, you can see the quadrant and the pointer.
Excuse me. that would be for as HANDY & LS said
column shift indicator
column shift indicator
No, but i think its the easiest cheapest option. Have you got a better idea?
Not familiar with your particular year but...
Do you think it is not the column shift indicator?
Update. One of the circuits on my cluster needed some soldering/repair. This was the light circuit, which is why none of my cluster lights were working. The repair has been made.
All of the instruments were tested and are working (the guy says he cannot test the tach) I'm not sure why none of them were working when it was installed, there must be a wiring issue outside of the cluster. I guess i will have to track that down next...
I found on mine, before I replaced it, that the connections we're all dirty. Sitting down with it, small tools and a pencil eraser or two yielded better connections, then I replaced the IVR, and everything not only works now, they all (except the clock, I have to do that next) work well.
What are the colors of the wires coming from the tach to switch hot and coil positive? The original harness connector is missing from the back of the tach and there is a red and black wire on the back of the tachometer. Thanks.
Why is the right blinker light NOT part of the printed circuit board?
Does anyone know which one of the fuses on the fuse box is related to the ignition? Or is there a fusible link somewhere?
Getting this cluster back together and trying to get my tach to work is becoming taxing. 3 days now.
