Search the forum you will find many good threads on this matter. You may have a voltage regulator going bad that seems to be the biggie on the B12.
i agree, its about 40 bucks from the dealer or you can go to the jy and pay 10 or so for it and replace it again in about 6 months like me :rolleyes: . basically, pull the cluster and remove the silver box(black boxs with fins on some) and bolt back up the way u took it off. 30 minutes for most, good luck! :cheers:
no, sorry but if u do a search one of the threads i know for sure has pics. hint: only box on the back of the cluster :cool:
