Display issues:

Instrument clusters, MID, SID and OBC units in several car makes have the common dead, fading, or completely disappearing pixel problem on the instrument cluster and on the on board computer (OBC) LCD display that shows valuable data such as the mileage, temperature, time and the OBC messages. The LCD pixel problem lies with the ribbon cable (also called flexible cable or flat cable) that connects the LCD display to the circuit board of the instru

ment cluster or the MID unit. The replacement of the ribbon cable fixes the problem permanently. Common symptoms of pixels error are:

--> Single pixels or complete lines of pixels have disappeared

--> LCD displays are difficult or impossible to read

--> Some cases the display returns to complete working order once cluster hits high or low temperatures.
