I 100% recommend Saar's services. Is the one thing in my TGP that actually works right now.


Ditto. All 3 of mine were bad. All 3 were repaired by Saar. While you have the cluster out 4G63, sand off the paint from behind the Intercooled Turbo script on the cluster face and install the missing bulb behind it. Looks nice at night lit up.

Do you fix these,saar?


 better than new.


After a while you'll learn to assume he not only fixed whatever it is but studied it in the process and now knows more about it than it's creator.


figuring out just what driver is used on these clusters for the speedo and tach took hours, if not days of scanning through period-correct datasheets, matching up sample circuits, eventually finding a match, finding superseded versions, finding superseded versions to those, repeat a couple more times, finally find parts that are actually still available, buy a stock of them for the inevitable failure of them in the future....


then repeat the process for the odometer driver.


and then the IC that controls the check gauges and low fuel lights(that one was a lucky guess though and took a whole 5 minutes).  and for  the TGP specific clusters, the IC that runs the boost gauge(another fairly lucky  break).



then mapping out every single component on all of the PCB revisions I've come across, determining and assigning a  function for  the more critical ones.... I mean, I might  know a thing or two about  them. I've got spreadsheets, images and text documents that are all generated from  my work that an electronic repair shop would have had to pay $$$$ for  back when these were  relevant.

..... and that's an affirmative to what I said before.
