speedometer inop fixed 900 1993

Similar findings on my 94 board but my speedo still operates. It was an accidental finding as I meant to repair the clock instead (its magnetic motor had broken). In my case one of the legs (terminal wire) of the speedo's capacitor had melted away (open circuit) with some corrosion on the circuit traces around it. Surely the corroding agent must had been electrolyte from that capacitor. Cleaned the traces with some alcohol and replaced the capacitor with another from my parts bin. Hard wired the corroded traces with some unused component legs and it was all ok. Caught before the act.

Amarin.
