http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?p=6981185I've seen the instrument panel needle motors mentioned as small stepper type
... In the days before solid state control modules, a stepper would be used to regulate the cycles of a machine...
Then I want to buy a couple of them... [woot][woot][woot]In order to improve ones chances of scoring... while driving.
Curious what does the LCD display on the left show? I ask as all of the 00-04 and 05-07 clusters I have seen only have the LCD on the right, with the cruise control, upshift, and O/D light in the place of the left LCD.
You can try to see if there are any part numbers on the gauge motors themselves and try to do a google search for them, you may have to remove one from the board as the number may be on the bottom of it. Alternatively you can get them off of a junkyard cluster as most of the time the 08-11 cars in the yards are in there for body damage not electronic or mechanical issues. That is if it is really the stepper motor that is the issue with your cluster.These are 4 white stepper motors for my dash. Controls the gauges.
