Repaired a 2005 Ford Sport Trac cluster. I don't normally do Ford clusters because I'm not set-up for it. But this guy couldn't find one anywhere in the junkyards so I gave it a shot. Found the problem right away but could not test it on the bench. Mailed it back to him. He sent me an e-transfer so I guess it worked lol.
This morning in the shop I repaired a couple of GM flip key FOBs ( 20835404 ) If you look at the one on the left you will notice it needed a new switch. This type of damage is usually caused by long finger nail on thumb. If you look above the unlock icon on the left you will notice the arced gouge in the rubber the shape of a finger nail. Installed 2 new cases and I have an other happy customer. Dealer wanted over $400 to replace these. I also sold him a couple of silicone case covers so this doesn't happen again. . If you own a GM flip keyfob like these I strongly suggest getting silicone cover cases because they are a bitch to repair and expensive to replace. Ali-express pretty much has all of the 5 variations of this set-up
I get them from a US supplier called led-switch. Look for 5mm 12 Volt Blue With Water Clear Lens. Were you planning on doing this yourself? You will need the polarity on the board because LEDs are polarity dependant. http://led-switch.com/12 volt LED.htm You can have a read in this thread.
Well I buy them 1000 at a time so I get a good price. about $2.35 Cdn after shipping, tax and customs. When I first started I used the white ones but they would fail. The last generation of white motors are better than the first generation. But I've never had a black one fail on me yet, better quality, better design.
