THis morning. Got into my clicking, clacking 92 Voyager AWD and turned the
radio up good and loud to cover the engine noise. Had a butt going when I
noticed the smell of burning electronics. I was HOPING it was the neighbor
burning whatever junk he throws in his wood stove. Then I noticed the wisp
of smoke coming out of the grille between the top of the instrument
cluster and the 'information center' where the turn signals, et al are
located. Hmmm.....turned the radio off. Still some smoke. Used the windows
on stores, etc to check the operation of the lights, OK. Windows, OK.
Power door locks, OK. Should I go home? Nah, the Scrap Yard is on my way
to the bank...
Get out of the bank and notice how warm it is outside. Hmmm...wonder what
the temerature is. No temperature. No AVG MPG. No MPG. No ODO. No info, no
light, no nothing. THe overhead console info canter was GONE. All the
dome lights worked, just no info center.
So, the question here is, where does this circuit come from? Is there a
connector behind the instrument panel? Is info from the IP sent there?
But! The motor is still clacking away!
A young girl I know told me I drive like an old man
I told her, actually, I drive like Mario Andretti.
