umm well here's the update i pulled the cluster out, pulled the 2 boards out of the cluster and visually inspected them both..the board witch has the istruments plugged to it is the one of my consern... i found several resistors to be loose on the board... so i re-saudered everything that was in question, as for the other board,it looks good (to a naked eye) but i did put a volt-meter on the batteries that are on the smaller boars i guess that's the "si" board as u call it... i desided to do away wit this on-board battery madness onse and for all (and by the way they are not re-chargable as many people say it said right on the battery "do-not re-charge!")So i went to a radio shack and bought a 4-AA battery holder or whatever u call it 1.5 v X 4 is 6 volts,the batteries that came out totalled 6 volts (3 each) ,came home wired it up,and ran out of steam, ill be putting it back in the car tomorrow , will update then...
