these guys repair the clusters for around $100 and give you a lifetime warranty.

Failing stepper motors in the speedo and tacks are a common issue on the S197

Love the vin code decoder, now I know I have a deluxe instead of a premium even though it has the leather seats.

My '85 GT tach quit working a few years ago. Turned out to be a fuse.

make sure there isn't a penny or dime in there. no ****. mine didn't work until I fished around and pulled a dime out of the power port in the console. 8 ball is correct on the stepper motors. get em' all done at once.
