Does anyone make new printed circuits for the Grand Prix gauge clusters? I have checked a few parts houses and cannot find them. I have two, the original one my car came with and the donor tach cluster came with. Both are "useable", but like when restoring my K5's dash I'd like a new printed circuit.

I was looking earlier in the year and couldn't find one. As far as I know and was told nobody makes new ones

There may be people that repair them, but I've yet to hear of anyone that produces, or reproduces them. I was fortunate to have a spare to replace a bad printed circuit...also for a Pontiac dash.
I think they could probably be repaired without too much effort.

Steve,
It vaguely sounds familiar...but I think you're right.
I think You Tube may have some information on do it yourself repairs. Sorry about all the advertisements.

Mike,
I think there may be a difference between the idiot light and gauge type printed circuits. I'm not entirely certain.

As far as I know no one is making reproductions. Sometimes you can find mint ones on Fleabay. I have had good results repairing them. Sometimes just a small drop of solder will work, sometimes a thin strip of tinfoil, and sometimes an actual length of copper wire is needed. But if it suffered a major meltdown not much will work. I know the Pontiac gauge pod connector is wired the same for both gauges and idiot lights. I can't remember if the printed circuit is different. I can check later.

I had one fixed, they used strands of wire and siliconed over the repair
