I'm trying to determine whether I have the common gauge cluster stepper motor problem or if it is something else. I noticed today that all of my gauges were pegged to zero and inoperable. Is it common for them to go out all at once like that? (I could understand failure of one at the time.) Or is it some other problem? I pulled the cluster. All of the solder joints looked good --still shiny and new. The only odd thing is that two dozen of the test points (or vias) have splotches or corrosion around them (see pictures). All of my fuses (both boxes) test continuous. No codes from my OBD2 reader. The lights seem all good. I just don't want to send my cluster in and find the real problem is somewhere else in the vehicle.
