    Last night, on the way home, I had a spirited little drive. When I slowed down to turn into my drive, I noticed my gauge lights were sort of pulsating. Not a ton, but definitely noticeable. And it was just the cluster lights, nothing else. I adjusted the brightness and it still did it. Possible headlight switch or did something else go bad?? Could it be the inverter?

    That's right, the Speedhut inverter is good but not as bright as the OEM. The guy that fixed my cluster said he could fix my old inverter as well so I'm going to have him do that and he might be able to tell me the actual output. If he does I'll post it here and maybe there's a better aftermarket equivalent out there.

    If the dimmer didn't effect it and your headlights were still on, than I would say it's probably the inverter. When mine was bad the gauge lights were totally intermittent.

    Definitely let us know what your repair guy finds out. Hell, maybe I’ll ship my cluster to him.

    Anyone find a replacement part that's as bright as the factor OEM inverter?
