Hey guys.
just took my cluster out to change the color of all the Leds in it.
and on the plus side, the lights work perfectly.
however. None of the lcds show anything, and all the joins look fine?
any ideas where to start or what it may be?

If your sure you have all pins soldered correctly.. then I I'd say the lcd's have fried, or you have damaged the copper trackings on the pcb board that the lcd connects to. Cant really apply any pressure otherwise you run the risk of snapping/cracking the track.
Alternatively, bending the pins too far at the lcd can also break connection.

How to fix?... new cluster.
