LCD Gauges

Postby dennyloyd » Sun Oct 02, 2011 10:38 am

I have 1985 1200A with only 20000 miles, I do have two bars on the fuel gauge that dosn't show up. Can these be repaired or fixed. And if so how do I go about it. Thanks

I have a LTD and mine is digital too I have not heard of anyone repairing the guages .If there was a repair kit it would be expensive or most likely a complete set up .Have you looked on Ebay or have you looked inside the guage cluster to get a idea what went wrong?

I bought a used 84 Aspencade a couple of summers ago and soon after, the last digit of the tachometer quit working and parts of some of the numbers for the speedometer don't show up. It is not bad enough for me not to be able to read and understand what is meant by the display however, I wood like the display to work correctly.
Anybody have any luck fixing or buying a new or used unit for the 1984 Aspencade?

It's very unlikely that you will be able to fix this (or any) LCD gauge. The only exception is if the problem is with the connection TO the LCD (usually a rubberized carbon strip that connects metal contacts to the conductive contacts in the LCD glass). Sometimes dirt and other contaminants can get in there, causing segments in the LCD to stop functioning. Taking it out, cleaning it with contact cleaner, as well as the metal contacts, then reassembling it can sometimes solve LCD problems.
