chrisski My thanks.

Like mentioned by briannilt, the corrosion was very hard to see. There was a light, thin powder. I actually sprayed household vinegar on a papertowel and rubbed over the corrosion, and it works fine now.

brianbilt So I found this thread and wanted to coment and send thanks. My 2005 ford focus would illuminate a green abs and engine light, even with the key removed from the ignition. I found this repair to be beru helpful as I pulled mu cluster to see if there was corrosion. Atfirstglance I didn't see anything out of the ordinary. But with a pair of 5xreaders on I could see corossion bleeding into the general areas of the board in which I suspect is 12 volts. The only item that I grabbed was my gun cleaning brush in which is copper. I cleaned the terms that looked bad and wipped them clean with some of my gun reinsalled and walla! Worked like new... hope it helps others... thank again

Tiger-Heli Also - the printed circuit board should (on a 2002 at least) just pull off - it is held by spring retainers behind the speedo, temp gauge, fuel gauge and (if applicable) tach.

sailor Easy access side seems to solve most problems that cleaning can resolve.

trondk Can I ask, did you clean both sides or just the rear?
I`m unable to figure out how to access the side beneath the speedo and rpm

amc49 If they put it together you can take it apart, doing so though often requires being creative as to coming back up with alternative ways of fixing fasteners that were intended to be broken to disassemble things. Ever took apart a Playstation 3?, Brother, they do not intend for kids to be doing that...................

sailor AFAIK, Ford only sells the "assembly" - so you'd have to find an electronics supply source for that specific component...

Whoever built it got the part SOMEWHERE, but guessing where? THAT'S the rub....

Engineering parts supply catalog.....

Finding a source that'll sell you just ONE....

used cluster is probably a bit easier when the time comes.....


(and as whynot mentioned, more questions REALLY need a new thread to get the best answers....)

whynotthinkwhynot Please start your own thread. The last post before you was 9-27-2010. You'll get better help doing that than bringing up an old thread.
