FICM toasted... literally.

That little box in there is split wide open and it was apparently arc-ing from time to time. Anyone else seen this before?

When a resistor, cap or IC burns up it will make a bit of a mess. You may be able to clean it up to find where the TNM occurred. Depending on much damage, you may be able to fix it or you may require a rebuilt board.

TNM = Thermal Nuclear Meltdown.

I wish i could see that pic a bit better, but it looks like something that is repairable. I work on Avionics and we repair micro electronics/circuit cards all the time with similar failures.

As far as your old FICM, i had a guy named Dave Ruberg fix mine. It was around the $115.00 range and he gives it a lifetime warranty. Heres the link to his web site. Speedometer Repair Guy
