Honda Civic 8th gen hatch, instrument cluster repair recommendations

5 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

p/x 8th gen Civic (the angular one!) on an 08

Typical Honda shite, the main cluster backlighting is intermitant.....honestly these Honda really ain't what they used to be.

I have found that the fault lies with the dimmer switch on the board, press the dimmer unit on the side therefore isolating the mechanical part of the movement and, the lights go on or off as pressure is applied to the units side etc.

Appears to have all the symptoms of a dry joint, but, could be a broken dimmer switch leg onto the board, there are 7 of them in total:wacko:. The backlights are all LED with memory settings so not just a case of bypassing the the switch and noting on the PDI:D

The guys I used to use folded a year or so back, can anyone recommend any decent cluster repair techs?

cheers guysB)

Sometimes a call to BBA Reman is worthwhile but it’s best to get it checked in writing they can do it before sending.
