Heya everyone,
I have a 2008 P71 and love it. Ever since I bought it, I noticed in cold weather, the instrument panel turns off/on randomly. I know the instrument panel soldering is probably shot and needs redone but I'd be way over my head trying to do the re-soldering.

I was wondering if you know of a shop (other than dealer) in the Central Ohio that can change the instrument panel for me and that it wouldn't cost an arm and a leg.

Too bad I was AFK much of the year. The service manager and I had to look into this. If you can do the R&R, there are shops out there you can ship your cluster to get refurbished.
