Hello Everyone,

I'm in the market for a new car and i have come across a 1992 White toronado Trofeo with 80,000 miles for 1500$ Runs Perfect starts right up, engine is in excellent condition, it is pretty mint execpt a damaged mirror, and fog lights not working, but it has a problem the gagues dont work all the time and and the c;limate controls dont work and the Information display says electrial problem, but the gauges and climate control is a easy fix, 189$, but the VIC syas the car is always in drive and and the system moniter doesnt work, and reports electical problem. is it worth it? i figure even if i cant get the VIX to cominucate with the drive train correctly everything else still works

It sounds to me that your ECM or Bcm may need to be replaced

I'm not sure, but I think the problem with the VIC goes away when you fix the IPC. You may want to check into that. Talk to mrcad472 on ebay, he's the one who fixed my IPC over 2 years ago, and it still works perfectly.

The fix for your gage cluster problem is at http://webspace.nematters.co.uk/caus...iv/ipc_fix.htm It is four pages of info that you can print out, the problem is a bad capacitor in the gage cluster. You can bring this info to your local tv repair place and they can replace the capacitor on the board. I've done this fix, and it works fine, and it only cost about 75$ to repair. The head tech at Yazaki North America tries to dissuade anyone from attempting this fix because they have an exclusive contract in the states for repairing these gage clusters. Any competent tv repair place can check your circuit boards and replace bad capacitors, they do it all the time on tvs.

Dash fix

I have just bought a 1992 trofeo, Dark green/grey metallic. I was told 65,000 miles on it. Leather, no VIC analog gauges, Typical dash cluster only tach works no climate controls. I have tried the link for the repair but it no longer works. Does anyone know which capacitors need to be replaced? Thanks !
