The internal power supply in the Digital Cluster is a common source of problem
with the Digital Cluster. Electrolytic capacitors dry out then short, the
switching transistor leads break internally, and failed alternators and 24V
jump starts can cause overvoltage which destroys the Varistor. A common cause
of high pitch whine is a failed inductor, and the kit now includes a replacement!
This kit provides the parts commonly needed to refurbish your power supply.
The 1989 Power Supply is integrated onto the motherboard, and is not replaceable!
The power supply on the 1989 model is not a separate board - it is integrated onto the motherboard of the cluster. Therefore, it cannot be replaced with an aftermarket power supply. When it fails, it must be repaired.
Signs your Power Supply may be defective
When the ignition is on, the cluster remains dark and the info can't be seen
Segments randomly flash on the dark LCD panels
The LCD or CLSTR fuses blow repeatedly
Physical damage to the components of the power supply
High Pitch Whine is common due to a failed switchmode inductor
