Instrument Cluster Repair Service For Porsche
The most common problem for the Porsche 911 is that the odometer will develop problems due to wear or normal damage. The odometer gauge cause complications on the reading, radio, and other critical areas on the dashboard. We have a lot of different tools and skills to repair the odometer without replacing it and, most importantly, without replacing an entire dashboard.
Porsche 993 And 964
These models also have some of the same problems as seen with the 911 but can also have minor issues with the tachometer gauge. The gauge will cause the display to be unreadable and show defective readings, spots, or lines, making the information useless when driving. We solve this by reprogramming any faulty electrical connections and replacing minor parts like the display or the gauge without switching out the entire dashboard.
Porsche 996 And 986
These models can quickly resolve problems by disconnecting the displays and replacing them with ones with better LCDs. Some specific things we may also have to is change up the heat controllers, work on the climate control systems and use new displays to get rid of readability issues caused by old or faulty displays.
In the end, the only way to solve cluster instrument problems is to use the best diagnostic systems in the world, and professionals who have experience solving similar issues. We have a couple of combined decades in the industry, and always know when it is best to repair or replace the cluster.
