    u may need cleaning only, plus check for proper clean ground connection to meter cluster. LED glow is electrical connection dependent.

    Bro if the IC is damaged then it wont work. Dim lighting is due to low current. It might need cleaning.

    please state the problem again .. IC ?? the 1 pc 16 pin & 2 pcs 8 pin ICs in this meter are to convert an analog pulse to digital signal which drive the digits and rpm bar(s). - the dim lights are poor ground connectivity or dust in cluster

    Bro who much does this meter or perhaps the rpm meter cost in Quetta in good condition. I have the standard non rpm based meter with the screen broken in half and held together by elfy (courtesy of my electrician) , If i can get my hands on a good condition screen , even that will do ..
