Here'* the inside. It is sooooo easy!

I took mine apart all the way. Even the smaller boards and gauges. I cleaned as much as I could, and reassembled.

Default DIC

Don't know if your 93 is the same but when my 90 SSE DIC and compass went out
after having the dash out 3 times I finally found it.
The thin green paper like wiring harness connecting the two had a break in the fine wire inside. I jumped it and its been working fine since.
If you pull the dash check all the harnesses as well as connectors.
Hope this helps.

I went further as well, but didn't have those pics in my PB account.

I used the pick in the photo to bend the gauge tabs on the circuit boards back inward so they connected better and dielectric greased them as well. Didn't help my epiliptic gauge issue though. The trick there is the little board that connects the three gauges on the right of your dash...left of the pic. Swapped it out...life is good.

One of my friends had his DIC go in his 99 Gp GTP and when he called me and told me "Ed my DIC stoped working" I must have laughed for 5 mins at him. But the dealership replaced it and he paid some kind deductible.

the problem with epilptic gauges lies in parts too small to identify and fix on that little board that connects directly to the three gauges. My new one gives me that overly crappy temperature reading.

Ok...read slow..I know it'* early out there.

My gauges were jumping around like an epileptic seizure. After changing that board they are very stable....but my temp reads 240 when it is only 215.

Aka...redline is 215. I'd pull the front off and use crayon to mark it ...but I ran out of sharp tipped crayons, will you lend me yours?
