    01 gtx carb gauge problem

    Has anyone ever taken one of these info gauges apart? The board looks corroded where the wires attach. Is there any chance to get in there and clean it up or am I looking at replacing it? Anyone know where I can find one used for a decent price? GD SALTWATER!

    Pull the wire strip terminal off and see if you can clean the pins.

    Would crc electrical contact cleaner be too corrosive? I guess it could also hurt the board too. What do you think?

    That wire strip terminal you see looks to have the wires soldered directly on the board. I have tried to pry the terminal away but it seems like the wires are directly soldered to the board thru the terminal strip as you call it. I can see at least two wires that are no longer attached to the board and can easily be re-soldered to the board if I can get this thing opened up. BTW, it seems saltwater got into the darn thing thru one of the screw mount positions. There are integral bungs in the plastic that terminate to keep out any water but it looks like the one cracked slightly and let our salty friend in. Am I S.O.L. or what?

    Hmm...I don't know man. The CRC won't hurt it, I'd give it a try. Just make sure the stuff is completely evaporated before attempting to power it backup. Resolder them, maybe you'll get lucky.

    is there any way to get this thing open? I can't get the strip off without tearing it to pieces.

    I have no idea...never seen that gauge before (as in the insides). I'd forget the pin area, and solder a jumper wire from the back side of the circuit board, where the broken corroded wire is, to the existing broken wires.

    You may need some good flux to get it clean enough for the solder to stick. Tin the wire(s) too before attempting to attach it.
