    Instrument Cluster Bad?

    I decided to open up the instrument cluster since none of the other wiring tests seemed to be leading anywhere. I took the tachometer off first and underneath i found two spots that look like they may have burn marks. Can anyone tell me what these pieces are, and if they have in fact blown or...

    This blue cylinder with the silver top may have blown

    No more error reading for this piece and the car starts now

    Bottom lights work (battery, check engine, glow plugs, seatbelt, high beams), as well as blinkers. No speedometer, gas gauge, tachometer, digital odometer and whatever the other digital reading is. No movement in needles at all, they all stay like this no matter if car is off or on.

    Only a few pins? See pic of the blue plug, only one wire goes to it, not sure if that’s correct?

    All pins seem to be in good shape. I did apply some dielectric silicone grease, no change so far.
  13. Sliding T28 out of its housing to see the numbers for the wires.

    Connected good ground from #3 wire to #5 bad wire to see if instrument cluster works w good ground.

    A whole lotta white. Old and very stiff.
