Mercedes instrument cluster LCD pixel repair.
The majority of Mercedes vehicle owners will have come across themselves or heard of the Mercedes instrument cluster LCD breaking up or failing altogether. This defect affects all classes from A, B, C, CLK, E, CLS, G, ML, V, VITO van and years 1994 to the present day.
The most common type of malfunction within LCD displays is pixel errors. Over time, individual or whole lines of pixels disappear, leaving the display distorted and unreadable. The loss then can either be permanent or temporary. This usually is the case when the instrument cluster hits very high or low temperatures.
Common symptoms of pixels error are:
- Single pixels or complete lines of pixels have disappeared.
- MID, DIS and displays are difficult or impossible to read.
- Display returns to complete working order once cluster hits high or low temperatures.
If you pay your local garage or dealer a visit, you'll be led to believe there is no professional way of repair and a replacement instrument cluster is required. Cluster Repairs UK are here to save you ££££...
Main dealer prices start at £350 to £900 + VAT + fitting + coding. This main dealer charge can easily reach a bill of over £1000. The new replacement unit will also only come with a 12-month warranty and no guarantee that the problem will not return. New instrument cluster prices depend on model of vehicle and age.
You should never opt into buying a Mercedes secondhand instrument cluster. These clusters will need to be coded to your vehicle to work correctly and warranties are short, normally 30 days. This alternative can end up costing more than anticipated and be a waste of time.
