Hello and welcome to justanswer. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I can assist you with this.
Does the speedometer work?
no..the trip odometer and odometer does not work...speedo yes
OK...so just to re-cap:
i have been told that the D4 light being out is an issue. does that correlate to anything that can be causing this problem?
Yes, that is correct. 100%
The D4 indicator being out would not hinder the odometer or trip from working. It is a separate issue. Did the d4 light work in the other cluster? If so, its usually just a blown bulb.
No the D4 did not work on the new (used) cluster.
Anything else I should look for or at? Replacing the cluster is relatively easy task to perform.
Ok, it's typical to see these bulbs blown since the light is on 90% of the time the car is running anyway.
There is a lengthy troubleshooting procedure for this, but usually it results in finding a blown bulb. You are going to need to replace the cluster anyway, hopefully the next one won't be blown. If so, you can replace the bulbs. CLICK HERE to see how.
OK...sounds like a plan. do you have anyone else other than evans automotive to go to for the instrument cluster? what is a good price to have to pay for one?
You could try www.carpart.com , usually I can find anything I need from the salvage yard, but if not, that's a good site to buy from.
I think the last one I bought was $100 from that salvage yard.
what guarentee do most places give? If I buy another one and it still does not work...then what?
That first place I sent you does 90 days on everything, so that's why I deal with them on anything I can.
The cluster is the problem, no doubt, there's nothing left.
Yes, you can request me each time. My username is thebesthonda.
It was my pleasure.
