yeah i have thought about just getting a new cluster from the junkyard they only want about $30 dollars at the picknpulls by me. The only worry is the mileage not reading right unless that is stored elsewhere than the cluster. Might check the solders this weekend when i do my heated mirror swap. thanks for the reply i wasn't sure if the towncar clusters swapped now i have more sources to pull one from.
