A very strange occurence

As some of you may have read I swapped out my HVAC control for a used one and it did not work properly, no AC compressor. I then swapped back in my original and it was then I noticed I have no instruments...zip no dash lights , no Tach...Zip.....any thoughts on this ??

I am checking fuses now and am yet to find a bad one ???

Thanks
Dwight

I found it, simple B1 fuse 15A. It did not look bad but it ohmed out to be open, put in a spare and there you go.....just goes to show do not trust a visual check.

Went back to my original

it works fine, just missing a segment or two and a rising sun (from the west)

Disassembled both units

The unit I got in was for a 99 and I have a 01, the only difference in the part numbers was the last digit. They were completely different inside from a PC board layout.
