FICM repair in Texas/Oklahoma.

Has anyone used C. Rimmer from Haltom City, Texas for Ficm repair? He's within driving distance from me which means layover is measured in hours instead of days. His website is gm-cluster-repair.weebly.com. His guarantee is lifetime so I can't see the problem and the downtime is just a road trip. Looking for some references though. I'm in Oklahoma so if someone has good reference to one closer I would appreciate that also.

I would ask what parts he replaces (if any) and do those parts meet/exceed the existing parts? If he just reflows the solder, what happens if that is not your issue with the FICM?

Forgot to mention this as well.
Ask him if he replaces the staking compound.

Thanks, I'll ask. Still looking for some references so this is a bump.

I used Circuit Board Medics. The promised 24 hour turn around which they met. In talking with them they not only repair the boards but also replace the faulty Ford components with upgraded versions. You can call them, I did. Once I talked with them I felt comfortable. I received my FICM back and it operates within 47.5-48.5 range. My P0611 error code has also cleared.

They're the same to me as ficmrepair.com or bulletproof or Swamp's, in that I have to mail it off to them. I'm looking for driving distance shops so I can take it to 'em. I know you could say South Carolina is within driving distance but you can see my other vehicle. It's a dodge! I gotta have one closer.
