Hi to all. This is my first topic so go easy on me. Decided to take the cluster out and take it apart to change the WHITE needles color to RED. Also noticed that the illumination SMD's are white so If I'd left it like this, newly RED painted needels will look PINK. So decided to change the stock WHITE smd's to RED ones. Powered the cluster up = they all lit up. Great. Started to put the cluster together and the needles in. Thats where the problem is. Upon applying power to the cluster from ignition, all 4 needles would "jump" a little, then perform a sweep test, and then maybe 90% at a time go back to the oryginal position. When turning ignition to OFF, the neddles jump again, and the illumination fades away like i should. Now i have an experience changing smd's and working on gauges, either analog or digital with stepper motors. Never had that problem. So decided to reseat the neddels and no luck. After a while, tought that only thing i changed was the white to red smd's. I say why not. I went and took the newly installed smd's (2 of them) that illuminate the water temp. gauge. Installed the oryginal white ones, put the needles back on and now only 3 of them except that one (water temp) will act up during startup and shut down. Teted in multiple times and same results. So I changed all the red smd's to oryginals ones. Put the needles back on. Pwered it up and the problem CAME BACK to all 4 needles... I checked for mechanical issue like needles beeing to tight or rubbing on something. Thats NOT the case. Im going to continue troubeshooting it till I ll get some results... Any out there had same experience before??? Im going to post a video shortly so You guys have a visual feel of whats going on. Thanks and I will kepp You updated.
