03 Roof Display/MPG + Direction Display

So a couple of months ago my overhead display quit working, but would randomly come on every once and a while. So today i went down to the junk yard and snagged 4 out of junk vehicles (1 lincon navigator, 2F-150s, 1-f250) and i couldnt get any of them to light up when plugged in. Ive checked all the fuses i could think to check. The instument panel fuse, the sunroof fuse, i dont know what the deal is. Anyone else have any problems like this?

Mine was broken as well, I took it apart soldered the loose resisters and works good as new. If your original was intermittent, take it apart (be careful sometimes the resisters are completely off and will fall out on you) press on the resisters one at a time until it works, then re-solder it. That's what worked for me anyway.

edit: Here's the post that I used to fix mine. It's really not hard to do just make sure that you use flux and a good quality solder
