      Cluster and interior lights.

      Iíve looked at fuse diagrams with no avail. About a month ago I was driving my 240 up to a cars and coffee and hit a bump turning onto the highway. As I hit the bumper the cluster lights died but everything else functions. I removed the cluster to do the temp gauge fix and noticed the sockets smelled burnt. Iíve got a spare cluster from a JY car and before I swap it I wanted to see if there was a hidden fuse somewhere I should check first.

      Your cluster has a dimmer dial. Perhaps check there first?

      What year is your car, The Clusters changed over the years. The First few years were very similar to the late 140's and have a PCB that is prone to cracking so if your car is -75 through about -78, inspect the pcb very carefully (on the replacement as well) New PCB's are available from Roger Patricio [email protected]

      Also , carefully inspect the fuse panel, depending on year and the type of fuses in it it may be time to upgrade the fuse panel to one that has more modern fuses that have a tight friction fit spades and lugs in place of the original spring loaded euro style.

      Ahh, a new one. What I and smoothdurban said still applies, but you may have better luck over on TurboBricks with a '91 240

      Agreed.

      make sure to be specific with your year and model over at TurboBricks or you may get roasted. Also try searching first.

      Best of luck
