Never heard of anyone getting an error message. Why would they? All you are doing is pulling 2 connectors and playing with 2 ribbons. Pretty simple fix, if it is the ribbons.
On mine, the temp was fixed, but the gear select has pixel problems, so it is going to get shipped out for repair.
I have duff displays in the E430: do I deduce that taking the cluster out won't fix the pixellation weirdness in the shift display? I fixed the Forester's clock (which is a tiny surface-mount resistor you have to re-solder) so I'm fairly good with bits - is there a similar DIY for pixel repairs?
