Faulty control/instrument panel

I had a problem with my instrument cluster on my 1999 dodge caravan went out. If you hit the top of your dash right above the cluster and it turns on or off then It is a cheep fix if you do it yourself. You take out the gauge cluster by removing screws from the door end of the dash. It is really simple. take out the gauge cluster and unplug it. Look at the plug end that is on the gauge cluster and look were it is soldered into the circuit board. If you look close you will see one or two pins where the solder joint or joints is/are cracked in a circle around the pin. Add some flux and apply heat with a stick type solder gun and it will be fixed. Now reassemble and you just saved 500 dollars minimum.
I bought a junkyard cluster for $60.00 , Installed it easily in about an hour. Reconnected power, it made a whirring/grinding/ clicking noise, as the computer reset the mileage.It's been fine ever since.
