LED Speedometer Display Problems on a 1988 Thunderbird
I recently bought a 1988 Thunderbird, V6, 3.8 with a digital (LED) speedometer display. It was dim when I bought it and the dimmer switch for the dash lights only made it dimmer. It recently went so dark that I can only tell how fast I am going if the sun is behind me or I have a flashlight. It is still working, I just can't see it.
Are there lamps behind this display or is there a fuse that controls the lights. There are several fuses in this car which the manual simply states as dash display.
I wanted to ask your advice before I pull off the dashboard and find that it was not necessary.
I have seen a few postings on other sights, one saying to pull the fuses out, one by one, (with the ACC switch on, but not the motor (that did not make sense to me either) and when the LED went out completely, to replace that fuse with a higher amp rated fuse). This sounds like it would just blow the thing completely.
You guys have any advice or suggestions?
I appreciate your help.
