well i had aftermarket reverse glow gauges that came with my car, and ever since i bought it they would flicker. they kept randomly going out and then back on, as if a ground was bad, and it did this for about two months to me, and im not sure how long to the previous owner, but he warned me about it and said he didnt know what it was. I tried all sorts of things, all sorts of different grounds, and a different power source, and it just wont stop flickering. as of two days ago it stopped working all together, so i said the hell with it, i checked it to make sure it has power, and it does, so i assumed that it was the "box" to the cluster. it's where the power and ground go into, and then there's a dimmer and wires to change it from green to blue. i said the hell with it and cut the wires, and tried wiring it directly, without that "box" and still no luck. did i just make a huge mistake by cutting that shit off or is it just a garbage cluster or what?


I repeat, I ALREADY KNOW IT HAS A GOOD GROUND AND POWER SOURCE, so that isn't my problem:bong:

I would assume that the gauges are just foobarred. Get some new ones, they aren't expensive really. If you have power and its grounded good, a flicker, to me would mean theres some form of wiring issue, like a broken wire etc. Check the connections where they actually go into the gauge face, and also follow every wire. That box is pretty important, so I would hook that back up, and check for power AFTER the box.
