Default 955/957 Cayenne DIY: Instrument cluster lighting repair

Symptom: Your LCD display inside your instrument cluster is very dim or was dim before, but now you cannot see anything at all on it. So you are left with only the analog dials (needles) to rely on, for information. This prevents you from accessing settings for the car.

This DIY will help you fix this issue. Most of the time, the issue is a transformer located on the main board of cluster, that becomes defective. The remedy is to replace it. Below info will show you every step of the way, from trim removal, taking cluster apart, doing solder rework and putting it all back together.

Pictures are very self-explanatory. I just completed this, after collecting information from multiple sources. Collected so that one can do it all from one place. Hope this helps.

Each pic has instructions for ease of use.

Do yourself a favor, review the entire DIY before you start, so you know what you will need, what you will need to do, etc.

PART INFO:
Ordered from: http://www.keyecu.com/index.php?route=common/home in the "Search" box enter 44002 and hit enter.

Ordered from this place for $25.90 plus about 23 bucks for shipping. If you plan to replace both transformers (one for LCD, another for analog dials brightness), order two and replace both.

If you are not sure you can tackle this, get someone that can solder.

Good luck.
