Some of these clusters short out and cause major electrical problems. This is why we highly recommend that you find a professional cluster company. This isn't us trying to sell you, but these are just the risks that we have seen over the years.

Our replacement instrument clusters are built to be above dealership standards. We fix known issues and replace all motors and parts. Out complete rebuilds ensure a long-lasting cluster which is why we offer a lifetime warranty on all of our clusters. After 30+ years of building clusters for dealerships and repair shops, we understand exactly how to build high-quality replacement clusters.

What causes instrument cluster failure?

Instrument cluster failure can be caused by a number of factors, including faulty wiring, blown fuses, defective or malfunctioning speedometer sensors, a faulty voltage regulator, a damaged fuse box, and more. In many cases, the issue lies deeper than just a simple repair or replacement of the cluster itself. It is important to have a trained mechanic diagnose and identify the underlying problem before attempting any sort of repair or replacement.

The amount of time it takes to replace instrument clusters varies depending on the type and model of the vehicle, as well as the brand and model of the instrument cluster. Generally, replacing an instrument cluster can take anywhere from roughly an hour to several hours, depending on the complexity of the vehicle and the cluster. In some cases, a professional may need additional time for diagnostics and troubleshooting if there is an underlying issue with the vehicle's wiring or electrical system.

Common Questions for instrument cluster replacement

What are some common symptoms of a broken instrument cluster?

Common symptoms of a broken instrument cluster can include flickering or non-functioning indicator lights, incorrect readings from the gauges, inaccurate speedometer readings, or the instrument cluster may not recognize your vehicle's key.

A defective instrument cluster can cause a lot of problems, but it is important to make sure you have the right parts and tools when attempting to replace or repair it. If you are unsure of what to do, it is best to contact a professional for assistance.

Can I replace an instrument cluster myself?

Replacing an instrument cluster is a complex process and it is not recommended that you attempt to do it yourself. This is because there are many risks involved, including the possibility of damaging your vehicle's wiring or electrical system. Additionally, having the wrong parts can cause further issues and make it difficult to diagnose any underlying problems.

Can I replace my own instrument cluster?

We do not recommend attempting to replace your instrument cluster on your own. Unless you have experience in repairing and replacing instrument clusters, it is best to leave the work up to a professional. Attempting to replace the cluster yourself may result in further damage or cause the issue to worsen. But in some cases where the problem is minor, it may be a relatively easy process and you might be able to install the cluster on your own.

How to diagnose an instrument cluster issue?

The instrument cluster begins with a diagnosis of the vehicle and the cluster. A trained mechanic or professional will use a scanner to access diagnostic codes and troubleshoot any underlying issues with the wiring or electrical system. They may also test the battery and other components for accuracy. Once any problems have been identified, they can then be fixed or replaced to restore the instrument cluster's functionality.

In summary, having an inoperable instrument cluster can cause a lot of problems for your vehicle. If you experience any of the symptoms listed above, it is important to have it diagnosed and repaired by a professional as soon as possible. Contact ISS Automotive at 1-800-548-1195.

Are all instrument clusters the same?

No, all instrument clusters are not the same. Instrument clusters can vary in size and features depending on the make and model of a vehicle. Instrument clusters may also vary depending on the trim level of a vehicle. For example, higher-end luxury vehicles may have more sophisticated instrument clusters with more features than a basic vehicle. It is important to check the specific make and model of your vehicle before attempting any repairs or replacements.

Do I need to program a new instrument cluster?

No, you don't need to program a new instrument cluster. Most modern cars come with an automatic setup that is already programmed for the vehicle. However, if you're looking to modify or customize your instrument cluster, you may need to program it or find a professional who can do the programming for you. Programming the instrument cluster can be a complex process that requires intricate knowledge of the car's systems, so it is best to consult a professional if you are looking to make changes. Additionally, depending on the vehicle and the modifications being made, you may need special tools or equipment for programming the instrument cluster. These tools and equipment can be expensive, so it is again best to consult a professional if you are considering making changes to your instrument cluster.
