    SOLD: 500E/E500, W124 LCD Temp Display, $22

    For sale is a working temp display LCD for all 124 models. This fits in the bottom of the instrument cluster.

    Tested & guaranteed to work.

    Fits in any .036 and other W124 models, as well as 1990-1996 W463 models. Super early (pre-1990) W124 models require a four-pin to five-pin cable adapter, but any 124 1990 and newer this is a direct bolt-in.

    MB part number is 124 542 01 05, list price for this item is off the charts.

    Price is $15 + 7.00 US Priority Mail shipping, for a total of $22.

    JC, I'll throw in an extra one for your hoard, and for your trouble. Note that they are US models, so will be in Fahrenheit, not centigrade.

    Cheers,
    Gerry

    If he insists on Centigrade, I’ll take the Farhenheit models. Mine has some black pixelation developing...

    Temp gauges are hitting the US mail in the next 90 minutes. I'll follow up with tracking numbers for each package. JC, you'll have two in the box.

    Now my parts hoard is reduced to four spare temp gauges. Curses !!

    Well, I have dismantled mine to replace the soldered incandescent with an LED but that is just the illness I have.

    Um, because every one I have ever seen is bad, so I assume the ones from junkyards would also go bad rapidly, if they are not bad already. A rebuild would at least have a chance to benefit from bettet technology.

    Generally, the capacitors go bad in these and that is the problem. Or the LCD screen springs a leak.

    Again, they are so prevalent and cheap and common that Iím not sure that the time and expense of sourcing and ordering parts and then fixing them is worth it.

    Iíve had good luck with wrecking yard parts. Iíve been running a wrecking yard spare in my car for about 4 years now with no issue. Iíve shipped spares to others in the past, and just sold three or four of them, with no issue.

    So, saying every one you have ever seen is bad, has definitely not been my experience.

    If one goes bad, you have a few spares on hand and change them out. Itís a 15-minute job rather than the time required to repair a circuit board or do whatever else is needed.

    Not saying they donít go bad, because they do. But itís really a time/effort thing. I generally get these spares for free at the wrecking yards, so it just doesnít pay to waste my time repairing.

    YMMV. I understand that.

    Re: SOLD: 500E/E500, W124 LCD Temp Display, $22

    One other thing ... several years ago I tried to "fix" the bad capacitors in a 126 temp display, which is almost identical to the W124 unit, but a slightly different size to fit that car's instrument cluster. I was unsuccessful at the fix, though it may be more due to my soldering skills than anything else.

    At that point, I just resolved to get any "good" 124 and 126 LCD temp display I come across. Even if the occasional "harvested" unit is bad, if I get three out of four good ones, given the effort involved, it's still time and money well spent over sourcing components, removing and disassembling, soldering/fixing, and then re-assembling things.

    Far easier to just remove cluster, unscrew two screws, replace, plug back in and re-install cluster. Bang! 10-15 mins max.

    Yep, will work in just about any 124 except for the very very early 1986 and 1987 models. Paypal: gerry@vanzandt.us Please also include your shipping address. I can get it out to you in today's mail.

    The late, 5-pin display can be retrofitted to the early 124's (1986-1987 vintage). Nice upgrade for owners of early pedstrian models, like my 87 300D, which got this upgrade many moons ago.
