Looking for a working salvaged 2013 instrument panel. Our works but is fried in some way. A diagnostic determined that that was what is draining our brand new battery so quickly.


Let me know if you have one or have a lead on one.

Many Thanks

the problem with soul and other clusters is that when you take a cold vehicle from outside into a warm humid underground parking lot there is condensation around the cluster. My 2013 soul progressively lost dash lights, instrument lights, tach and speedo, Would not shift out of park. Had to use a small screwdriver to unlock. Stealership said I would need a new cluster$1800 and 400 to $500 + 4%sshop supplies,. to change and reprogram. Fixed it myself with contact cleaner, alcohol and it was primarily the ground on the display at the bottom of the cluster. Where the ribbon cable connects water gets into the connector and causes problem when it freezes and thaws. So yours is probably shorting out somehow. .
