    This is good info. I am going to take the cluster out this weekend and see if tightening those nuts will do the trick. Thanks!

      I could only turn the nuts about a quarter turn...did the fuel gauge and the temp. I ordered a new SI board for ha's...ha's. WTH...I have the thing out of the car. I may as well do some preventative maintenance. I will also change the bulbs on the circuit board. Money is no object when it comes to the car, right?

        Just put the new SI board in and I now have and inspection light on and a brake lining light on. I shorted the brake lining light...dunno why that is on. I am going to disconnect the negative terminal for 20 mins or so and see if that helps anything. Anybody had similiar issues?

            actual headlights work but the cluster lights do not. The radio doesn't work (red led doesn't blink). Checked fuses 21 and 10 and both are fine. I must've hooked the damn cluster up wrong?!?!?! Any ideas. I am going to go back out now and take the fokker out.

                well...haste makes waste. I forgot to plug in the white connector. Now all the guages work/lights etc. BUT the inspection light is still on. So now I am wondering if I connected the little connector on the left side into the right pins. I am going to do a search on inspection light now and see if this is common with SI board install.

                  did you try resetting the inspection light?

                    The inspection light was not on before I changed SI boards but the answer to your question is no and that is only b/c I don't have the reset tool. Would that reset tool be a good investment? I don't know how frequently these inspection lights come on. I have only had the car for a year and only driven about 500 net miles.

                    Also...for visual purposes. This is the wire and the connector (circled in red in both instances) that I am concerned about a possibly having had misplaced. I am not sure whether or not this has anything to do with the inspection light but I am sure that somebody here knows. Thanks!

                      Mflossin,

                      If you do a search on the forum there is a way to reset the lights I think by just using a paper clip or piece of wire so you do not need to buy one of those reset tools...

                        yep...just did it. Def don't want to use a paper clip. I just took some simple 18g wire spliced either end about .5" and stuck them inside pin 19 and 7. Didn't use and inline fuse...just wire. Turned ignition into "on" position and waited 10 seconds. lights turned green and the service light went out....VOILA! Now I can sleep! I fucking love s14.net. Thanks guys!:cool:
