  3. What did you do with your truck/shop today

    Just finished an other 2004 Silverado cluster LEDed in blue. Aside from the mileage looks pretty much like the one I did yesterday. It's almost getting boring...
  4. What did you do with your truck/shop today

    In the shop so far today, I couldn't fix 2 Dodge FOBs, the transponder in one of them was cracked in two pieces and the other one was dropped in slush last winter. Salt and gold don't get along very well and salt always wins. Then refurbished a 2004 Avalanche cluster in blue.
  5. What did you do with your truck/shop today

    In the shop today I repaired two of these babies, I really had to wrestle to get this one done every step of the way. Took me a little over an hour. It's for a 2013 KIA Rondo. Before : After:
  6. I repair a dozen of these a month 03-04. You have a cold solder on one of the glass diodes from the 12V battery plus. Your problem will not fix itself. It may be intermittent for a while until it completely fails.

    It is hard to write the tone of voice...All good, I was just being sassy. Also maybe because I hate black. Only had one black ( a 2008 Cobalt ) seems like it was always dirty even after I just washed it. Did I mention I hate black.

    Then you're stuck in a groove, live a little or maybe you are color blind in which case stick with what works for you. Black is not a color, black is a lack of color.

    In the shop this morning did a cluster repair for an 04 Sierra. Speedo and oil only. He'll be back!!!
  10. What did you do with your truck/shop today

    You can get new buttons off of ebay, did this for a friend of mine. Once I was done I clear coated them and they stayed nice. https://www.ebay.ca/itm/AC-Dash-Button-Repair-Kit-Decal-Stickers-Replacement-for-Chevrolet-GMC-Tahoe/382692878265?fits=Year%3A2011&hash=item591a45e7b9:g:0pYAAOSwlINcIdSp:rk:4:pf:0&vxp=mtr
  11. What did you do with your truck/shop today

    Today in the shop: This guy Tom that drove from 2 hours away insisted because he heard from a friend I was the best. Nice complement but I'm good at what I do because I've been doing it for 9 years on GM clusters. This particular cluster he brought me out of a 2002 F350 I had never seen before. Still took me all of 10 minutes to find the problem and 8 of those was taking it apart. Here's a picture of the cause of his failed cluster taken from my electronic microscope. Asked him for $20 when he got back home and tested it and he gave me $50 on the spot fully confident I had the problem fixed. Hope I don't get one of those calls!!!

  14. Sorry, I thought we were talking about real trucks.
