98 Regency: Thanks for posting. FYI, I'm still trying to get my cluster gauges to work again. I printed the repair instructions from an old thread and gave them plus my cluster to an electronic repair guy. I should get it back next week. I also bought a supposedly working unit from a guy in PA. That IPC should be here next week. I hope one of the two will work.

I hope you get that fully functioning cluster.

Good news. The "radio" repair guy fixed one of my clusters by swapping out the 3.3mf capacitor that was originally identified in a 19 year old write-up that resurfaced in2012 because you responded with a link to the original. Thanks again. I added photos to support the write-up.

The cluster that I bought from a '92 Toro owner on his word that it worked when he pulled it arrived yesterday. He lied to me and said he shipped it mid-July. The postage stamp showed he shipped it Friday. Anyway, I took my dash apart yesterday, the one that I just put back together Sunday, only to find his cluster had the same issues as mine. So now I have another bad one. However, armed with the knowledge gained from the write-up I dismantled this cluster, got out a magnifying glass and found acid crud leaking from, you guessed it, that same 3.3mf capacitor. I think I will gamble with $45 and have the radio repair guy put in a new capacitor. If my gamble works, I'll have 2 working clusters for $100 each. At least I have one that works now.

That is how you do it. You have to be careful with people out there as I have been burned in the past. That is why I have to put an engine in my 1995
Oldsmobile Ninety Eight due to a bad transmission shop. I also got the service manuals, read up on things, learn by doing and going online too. I learn from mistakes and from victories too. The technology on these cars make them workable. One of the first things I learned to do is learn GM parts numbers.
