Dead Digital Dash on my '84 Subaru Turbo Wagon

Discussion in 'General Motoring' started by Bob Durstenfeld, Jan 27, 2004.

  1. I have a 1984 Subaru Turbo Wagon that runs great and only has 130,000
    miles. A few weeks ago the Digital Dash Display module (Speedpmeter,
    Gas Guage, Temp Guage, Trip Compter, Clock, etc) smoked and went dark.
    I took apart the dash and several traces are burned away on the
    printed circuit board. Does any one know where I can get schematics or
    if I can replace the digital with a standard mechanical speedometer?
    thanks in advance

    Why not just get a second hand one that works. Or even pay for a new one.
    Shit man don't make it harder that it needs to be.

    I have a 84 GL-10 that I had fixed the digital dash on once already. I had
    blown a power resistor and some zapped tracks on the circuit board. Also
    had to replace the trip computer with another one I picked up second hand.
    That fix lasted for 80,000 miles and about 6 years but last weekend I blew
    a diode on the top left corner of the main instrument panel board.

    Can anyone tell me what diode or color bands are on that diode? If I can
    get the color bands I should be able to replace the diode and be back up
    and running. The diode has the identification #D13 on the circuit board
    next to its position. All I have left of the diode is the color Grey with
    one band left which is black in color.

    The other option is does anyone have a digital dash for a 84 GL-10 that
    they would like to sell?
    Any help is greatly appreciated.
