That solved the problem with mine. I replaced it with an analog clock from Motorsport Auto. The thing matches the other instruments and has been working perfectly for about 6 years now. By the way, if yours had lasted this long you should count yourself very lucky. Most of 'em committed hara kiri by '89.
Be awful careful when you remove the printed circuit board in back of your digital clock to take it out. I recommend using a dentist's mirror and a pen light to scope things out before you fiddle with it. That little jewel breaks very easily, and a new one costs about $80. Good luck.
i have a digital clock available out of 1982 280zx
if interested i can sell that to u it will take care of
your problem,because e-circuits are very tricky and
if your clock develops a short u will be in for more than
a clock u will be looking at replacing /troubleshooting
some wiring etc and who knows what else
a FIRE HAzard is a posibility
if u dont have the money i suggest u disscoinect the clock!
by the way clocks are rare so my price is $100 thanks
take care. safe is better than sorry.
I agree with an earlier post. Replace it with an analog clock. You can get one from Motorsports, the dealer, or a junkyard. Unless you have the digital dash, the digital clock seems to look out of place.
