Plain old extra fine tip soldering iron. Its a surface mount IC, nothing special about it.

AR is setup up for this, thats all they do. They can test the full function of the cluster, check the code, rewrite the code, have access to proprietary parts, possibly even at one time where a factory authorized repair center so plenty of insider info they don't share, its one thing when you know the workings of the thing it makes it all that much faster to repair. I know for some of the stuff I repair regularily the sounds it makes, or does not make, or an extra click, etc, is my biggest diagnostic tool, you don't get there by only working on one or two of the things. But also getting up close and personal to recognize the noises it is supposed to make and for how long. No service manual teaches you that, just experience.

So moving forward...for those of use who want to buy the resoldering equipment, it would be awsome to find out actually where these problem areas are. How we do that, Im not sure. I was considering takeing super high res photos of every joint, then sending away let it get fixed, then rephoto it again and look for the repair areas.

On a side note, I have a very high success rate with most circuit board repair from pinball machines, F-150 overhead displays, F150 odometers, etc.... Im struggling with these crown vic clusters however.

How much $$ for AR speedometer to look at it? How quickly can they turn it around?

Solder the connector, solder the surface mount components UNDER the odometer display, and resolder the legs of the odometer. Then eyeball the rest of the through hole components and see if they need a touch up. It'll all be self explanatory once you got it apart and looking at it.

Hi. Pictures in top post seems to have disappeared. Is this a forum error? Can it be fixed?
I finally dare to start this adventure but not without some photo material next to me on my desk.

Forum issue. Looks like most every circuit board in existance. Short version: Resolder the surface mount parts under the odometer display, resolder the display standoffs, the high watt resistors and the connector.
