Help - Dashboard/gauges suddenly dead?

Quick question -- when I got in my car to drive back to the office from lunch today, the dashboard of my Boxster S was completely dead -- no digital displays, no speedometer, no tach, no gas/temp gauges -- any ideas? Think it's a fuse? Help?!

Thanks,
Adit

So you remember us. A few of the Babblers put in your cd changer on 10/21/00, on your '01 Boxster with PSM, the first such install.

I got my Tool Pants name that day from Dan, and we never heard from you since then. Hope is has been fun.

Tom's pic of that cd changer day.

Re: Help - Dashboard/gauges suddenly dead?

are your analog guages working?? if so it maybe the the lights (3 of them that are out) is the problem. sometimes they become loose, for about 3 months i would wack the top of the guage console with my fist that would fix my odometer light... evenually i had tom help me replace a couple of lights in that same parking lot as your repair...it is easy if you are a wizard like jeff or tom, not if you are a klutz like me...

Yes

A socket wrench spinning back and forth tucked partially into your back pocket as you walked around and between Boxsters and then the chisel pocking up from your back pocket as you climbed into Boxsters. Dan finally said something. That day you really did earn the moniker.
