Instrument cluster

I have an issue with my instrument cluster. The only needle that works is the tachometer. Other than that nothing else works. Every light is on even though there is nothing wrong with the car. My signal light indicators work. But the speedometer, fuel gauge, and temperature gauge does not. The only way I know how fast I am going is the tiny projector I have in my dashboard that shows my speed on the windshield. But that is only helpful at night because the sun is in my eyes. What could be wrong?

Do you
have the same problem?

Hello,

It sounds like you have cold solder joint in the cluster and it needs to be rebuilt. Here is a video that will show you what you are in for when doing the job.
