Default Circuitboard

Ugh, wish I would have seen it while I had It out.
stinking speedo cable was a b****, now
I'm having problems with a few things and I think it's the circuitboard.blinkers don't light up on the dash no mo everything else is good, allready tried new lamps and holders,just wanna get the
Correct part, I hate after market crap.
Thought about conductive paint repair but
It's pretty old and something else will just happen, has anyone tried the after market ones from ecklers or restoparts ?
Any reviews. Good , bad ? Let me know if ya got any info. Thanks in advance

The trick for the speedometer cable is to disconnect it from the transmission, pull up the slack through the firewall and attach it while you still have access to the back of the cluster. Give it a good pull to make sure its connected, and spin the cable from below to verify operation. As you push the cluster/dash assembly back into place the cable will feed back down towards the transmission.

My problem was putting it back on. When i pulled out the cluster the first time the inner cable was stuck to the speedo and pulled away from the tranni which didn't
Work after I had a bear of a time putting the outer housing back onto the cluster after the cluster was in place.almost impossible but I did it finally, then had to remove the outer cable at the tranni and easily put it back in place then the speedo worked again. do you think I can just disconnect at the tranni only,without having to remove it from the cluster at all without tweaking the cable ? Cuz I had to pull it out upward
Cuz I didn't want to pull the hole dash forward
Which would be a lot more work. Are you saying you think it can be carefully finnesed up and out without removing the cable from the cluster at all ?

I bought a new circuit board for my Sprint from NPD when I put a Monte Carlo dash in it, everything works and the price was decent.

I can't see how you can replace the circuit board without pulling the dash out at least at 3 or 4 inches. Replace the upper mounting bolts at the ends with 6" long studs to hold the dash in place. Keep the center section supported, thats it's weakest point. You can leave the speedo cable attached if you disconnect it at the trans and loosen any hold down clamps. I pulled the cable up a few inches which is all I needed. No binding at all.
If you buy a new circuit board, make sure you get the right one for your application, gauges or warning lights.
