Inverter Problem in our SVT's

Hey all,

I've solved our inverter issue. The stock one, the one on the oil gauge cluster. No need to re-wire everything, just replace the existing inverter with a 3$ part I believe. 5$? It's a cheap fix, you need solder tools though, a real steady hand and good eyes. I will be posting up a write up on it.

What I do need to know, is the odometer screen, is that powered through a bulb? Or is it EL as well?

I would think its EL, but I've been wrong before.

That's good news. Looks like I got a bad bulb. I'll be posting the EL write up soon.
