    This past weekend my overhead display just stopped "displaying". I checked all the fuses and they look good. Any thoughts?

    I just fixed mine, it is a weak solder joint on the PCB on 510 resistor. Dealer will want @ $1000.00, fix it yourself, very easy.

    That makes sense. Summer temps just hit here in SLC. Peculiar. Hopefully soldering the 510s fixes it up.
