Prolly gonna have to re-solder(dont remember exactly where, I said **** it when mine went) or just get a new one(and **** that, too much cheddar). You could try yanking it out and check to see what solder joint broke and fix it.



Does everything else in the car light up?

Another thing i noticed when i took my car out tonight the gauge lighting started flickering at one point.

Yeah, i realized that it was just the condition outside. It was humid like a **** and there was a bunch of fog out too.

Use dieletrical grease around your solder joints, that should help w/ the humid problem.
