The dash of my 2005 International CE300 has not had a working speedo since the day I bought it in 2018, but that didn't worry me too much (I used GPS or BlueFire to monitor speed). I had the speed sender replaced and that didn't fix it so we figured it was the dash itself, but I thought it was too expensive at the time. Now the tachometer has stopped working. I've also noticed that my high beam indicator doesn't work (hard to tell if the high beams area actually coming on since they are so dim and the lenses are hazed over, but that is another issue). Now I am concerned that it might be giving false positive, or worse, false negative warning lights.
I pulled the dash apart and looked for bad solder but it looked OK (some folks have said you might be able to just re-solder a flaky dash). Now I'm in the market for a junk yard instrument cluster. My question is can I just plug and play? Since there are no mechanical attachments to the cluster I assume it is just a display for the data coming from the computer. Has anybody had any experience with a swap?
