You can jump it with a piece of wire and solder both sides. IF, you know how to solder properly.Does anyone know how to reair a PCB for the gage panel. I was tested with to much current and burned a spot. Can I solder this back without do further damage?
I would use the jumper. To avoid a cold joint, use Eutectic solder.If it was a hard plastic type PCB I would not worry about the repair, but the see through plastic type does. I guess I could jumper a wire, but the space is less than 1/8 of an inch. I thought maybe just melting some solder between them. I might get a cold solder joint?
It's a plastic film. Gene has the right idea. It can be done. However, when I had my dash out it seperated and fell apart. I found a NOS GM board.Is that PC on a mylar sheet? the mylar will melt way before the solder does. If it's a standard PC board then a jumper is best.
It may sound “Mickey-mouse” but I know it works.Does anyone know how to reair a PCB for the gage panel. I was tested with to much current and burned a spot. Can I solder this back without do further damage?
This might work well if the area does not flex during install (cracking conductive paint).It may sound “Mickey-mouse” but I know it works.
Buy a bottle of window defroster repair. Like when the rear window defroster wire gets broke. Your just paint it on. No ****, the thicker you paint it on the more current it will carry. If you **** up, nail polish remover will clean it off and you can try again.
