The lighting system of all 80's fords speedometer is an independent circuit of the speedometer itself. When there is no display, one of 2 things could happen: 1-.The power line of the speedometer is damaged. Normally they have a kind of ribbon cable with cooper bands connecting between the panel, the 12V source and the sensor. Please check the ribbon cable if it doesn't have any gap in the cooper lines. 2.-Perhaps the 12V speedometer's internal regulator is damaged, you have to check if it is replaceable, if it isn

There may be several reasons whey the digital speedometer might not work. The first is that the LED light may have burned out. The second is that the fuse may have gone out. It also might have a bad speedometer cable.

If the digital dash lights up but shows no numbers for the speedometer on a 1989 Thunderbird LX, it is possible that a fuse is blown for the speedometer and the fuel gauge. There is more than one light in the dash for the speedometer.

DLP is digital light processing and LCD is liquid crystal display.
