What is an instrument cluster on a vehicle?
A modern car instrument cluster in the dashboard is integral to every vehicle. It is a collection of numerous gauges, LCD screens and buttons placed directly in front of the driver on the dashboard, providing valuable information at a glance. The instrument panel typically includes the following features:
A speedometer, Tachometer, Fuel Gauge, Engine Coolant Temperature Gauge, odometer or instrument cluster that measures and displays the total distance travelled by the vehicle. Trip meter, indicator light warning light. There are some sensors. For example;
Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) or ABS Engine Coolant Sensor, Fuel Sender Sensor, Crankshaft Sensor, Airbag/SRS Seatbelt Sensor, and Oil Level Sensor.
Every manufacturer has a different system design for the instrument cluster. Some automakers are adding features which also increase the number of warning lights. The automotive system developer designed the vehicle's electrical system to link the electronics modules and the actuators. For example, Ford designed instrument cluster modules connecting the other car module, but it was years ago; it was to prevent the car from starting, but if the instrument cluster failed, the cars were not starting until you repaired the odometer. All VW-branded instrument clusters have an immobilizer, so the vehicle's security is in the instrument cluster. Technicians use wiring diagrams to test the vehicle's system and then consider the electronics' failure.
The most common failure in instrument clusters is display (LCD) failure, warning light going dim, or black screen. The instruments do not work or work incorrectly; the Warning light stays on even when the engine is off. The stepper motor is not working. The entire cluster is blinking.
Do you want to buy a new dashboard instrument cluster?
Before buying a new dashboard odometer or instrument cluster, you must understand that to run a car; the system requires mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, and electronics engineering. Executing the system needs embedded software engineering, which we call programming. Therefore if you buy a new dashboard odometer/ dashboard instrument cluster, you still need programming, and the dealer will charge three figure amount.
So, the solution we have found is to provide you with instrument cluster repair or instrument cluster replacement. If the instrument cluster is irreparable and the circuit board is completely damaged, buy a used instrument cluster, and we will program and code the instrument cluster.
