Default Control panel

I have a 1984 convertible corvette and there is a lot wrong but seems to be just the small tedious stuff. My question is my digital panel is not lighting up or working. Fuses are good. What could it be? And if I decide to go with a non digital panel is that possible and how hard is it to convert.

Test voltage at Pin D5 for the dash connector. This should be battery voltage. Pin D16 and C16 should be 0. Key on, all three should be battery voltage. If one of them aren't, the issue is in that circuit and not the dash. If they are all good, GM says replace the dash. The LCD fuse, cluster fuse, and Tail fuse, and INST fuse block all part of the dash circuit, in some capacity.

Check the voltage at those pins (will require pulling dash, isn't too hard) to ground, and report back what you find. Don't test resistance for anything, the dash/telltale center have solid state components and could be damaged if you test resistance. Just measure VDC.

I wouldn't go with a different dash. I haven't seen an aftermarket analog setup, although their is a aftermarket digital one. I think its ugly as sin.

Sorry, but no. There were no convertibles built in 1984. If you meant targa top, coupe, ok, no prob. If it is a convertible its definatly not an '84

Default Title.

It states its a convertible on the title so for no mix up I put what it states on the title. I am a NEW corvette owner so sorry for not knowing all the lingo

Might be a dumb question but, do we know if the bulbs just aren't burnt out?

That's why I asked him to voltage check it. If it has power, then the bulbs would be the place to start.
