My 2008 Honda CRV's cluster was experiencing issues with flickering and flashing. It got so bad that the majority of the screen on the cluster went black. Couldn't see the temp. of the engine, how much gas was in the tank, etc. I did some research and found a couple of vidoes by Automotive Circuit Solutions on YouTube - they showed how to fix the exact problem on my exact model of vehicle.
Normally I'm the kind of guy who likes to figure stuff out, but not having a lot of cash to work with, I opted to let them repair it. I figured there was less risk to have them fix it rather than doing it myself and potentially going on an expensive learning curve with my only vehicle.
Some concerns I had before I sent my cluster to them for repair:
1) Legitimacy (there's always some risk involved sending off an expensive car part to a company you're not familar with, especially if you find the business off of the internet)
2) If whether or not the mileage on my cluster would read differently when it returned
3) If my cluster would be packaged well enough to survive the shipping process
I followed the link to their website, where after careful consideration & pouring over their reviews, decided to give ACS a try. I sent my cluster to them through UPS (you cover the cost of shipping to them) on Monday; according to my UPS tracking number, they recieved it Thursday morning at 10 AM...at about 4 PM on the same day, I recieved an email from ACS notifying me that my item was repaired and was on it's way back to me. INCREDIBLE turnaround time!
My cluster arrived the following Tuesday via USPS (that's the company that they ship your cluster back to you through - you can choose what shipping options work best for you when you're purchasing the service).
Cluster came back well packaged, repaired, and in good condition. The mileage was the same as when I sent it in.
I should also note that my speedometer was about 12 miles too fast before sending it to ACS. However, since they've repaired it, it is now accurate.
Not only was their service fantastic, but they also saved me a lot of money - a local mechanic quoted me $1,089 to have the cluster replaced. I paid roughly $305 to get the cluster fixed by ACS (includes cost of shipping).
Very happy with ACS. Would definitely recommend.
I had the flickering cluster issue on my 2007 Honda CRV. I was given directions on how to remove/package/mail the cluster. Within a few weeks I had everything fixed! So easy! Thank you!

I mailed out my cluster and got it back in 2 days working good as new. They packed it back up with plenty of padding for the way home. Highly recommend these guys. Saved me about $2,000. Thank you!
Great Job Thanks.
