Dash board failure

Post by davi82a » Thu Jun 22, 2017 8:23 am

Hello all,
Been having some problems with my 2008 990 SM. The tachometer and LCD display are both dead. The only light that appears to be working is the immobilizer. I had issues with the screen fogging up before hand. I took the whole unit apart wearing anti static tab and gloves to avoid damaging circuit board further. It was a bit dirty in places so I cleaned with electrical cleaner and cotton buds. Looks immaculate now, however, when I put it together again it remains non functional. I'm guessing its a component in the circuit that has gone i.e. resistor, diode. I'm wondering if anyone on here is clues up with the white mans magic and can point me in the right direction as to what component is to blame. Failing that, would be useful to have some links as to where I can buy a replacement (both factory fitted or aftermarket) Interested in an aftermarket replacement down to the fact the stock one is of poor quality. I'm not fussed, any useful information that'll give me an idea of how fast i'm going would be much appreciated.
