Item specifics

Condition: Remanufactured
Seller Notes: 2E38-10849-AE These are the older version clusters, much more sturdy than the G series. They have been repaired and upgraded to the B1 conversion. Each rebuild begins with a 6 chip replacement,then further testing, further repairs if necessary, upgrade and final testing in a working Think. Current cluster for sale displays 36 miles! Free shipping and $50.00 back if you send me a rebuildable core. (no A.S.I. cores accepted). Last pic is of future B2 still in development.
Country of Manufacture: United States

 The B1 Super Cluster Upgrade is the Best Cluster Repair Available!!!

Fast USPS Priority shipping!! Have it in your hands 2-4 days Continental U.S. 

  

What is the B1 Upgrade?

     The biggest problem with the Ford Think cluster is the amount of heat produced from the Circuits that convert 72 Volts DC To lesser voltages. That type of voltage conversion generates enough constant heat to weaken the components over time. These circuits are active whenever the main power switch under the seat is in the on position. Sure, you can turn the switch off when the vehicle is not in use, but that creates another problem. The surge of activating that switch has been known to push these heat weakened components over the edge. Installing new parts to replace the ones that fail the most has been the best solution for damaged clusters up to this time. A few rebuilders have created heat sinks to remove the heat or higher rated components that generate more heat but withstand it better. Either way, the cluster board gets way too hot, hot enough to catch fire and take the rest of the vehicle with it !!! Enter the B1...

 

    The best way to remove heat from a circuit is to remove the circuit. Instead of building heat sinks or attaching outside units to the cluster which still retain heat and add weight to the frail plastic shell, I have developed the B1 system. It is very simple. The 72 volt to 12 volt conversion takes place outside of the cluster. Actually a foot away from it is more accurate. About 20% of the printed circuit board's designated use has been eliminated along with 70% of the heat. This system also draws less power from the batteries, approximately 15%. Along with these advantages comes a few more important ones. The external power supply has an internal surge protector circuit and maintains a constant voltage regardless of charge condition down to 60 volts. In addition only the B1 has a 5 amp fuse for the cluster supply voltgage, no one else has added this safety feature. Another plus of this system is the ability to diagnose voltage loss. The harness that comes from the rear of the cluster can be pinned to check 72 volts to the cluster with a standard volt meter. Orange to black is 72 volts inside the cluster and green to black is 12 volts returning to the cluster. If for any reason the external power supply fails, it can be replaced independently without having the whole cluster rebuilt. This means that a forty dollar part is plugged in instead of sending your cluster away for an expensive rebuild. This system also helps prevent catastrophic failures that can damage the circuit board beyond repair. With how hard it is to find repairable boards the last thing you want is a ruined core, or a dash fire. The B1 is much safer and reliable than any other repair to date!


This purchase requires no Core!!!

If you have a rebuildable core to send back, I will refund you $50.00 via PayPal. This applies to a repairable cluster that has not been worked on by ASI.

One Year Warranty

.

I warranty all parts used in the repair and upgrade of your cluster for one year from date of purchase. This refers to replacement parts and labor only. Return shipping is responsibility of customer. No other warranty is expressed or implied in any way in regard to other vehicle or component functions or failures Ebay only allows for 60 days to display. I stand by my One Year Warranty.

In the event of a warranty issue contact me at the number listed above or email me through ebay in the form of a question. Include a description of the malfunction, I will then help diagnose your vehicle. If I conclude the cluster is at fault, return the cluster for inspection and repair. If my repair is at fault and the cluster is deemed unrepairable, I reserve the right to substitute a replacement cluster from my inventory.

Warranty Covers cluster failure of replacement parts from normal use, for one year. Does not cover failure due to oversize fuse, faulty/miswiring, or damage caused by other component electrical surges from the charger or DC/DC Converter, harness shorts, or component shorts. Extreme exposure to elements (damp or corrosive) also not covered. If you have a suspicion of what's causing your cluster failures or you've gone through a couple of clusters in a short time period, I can recommend what to look for before installation of the newly repaired one.

About competitors warranty

Be careful with the promise of a non transferable lifetime warranty! This often refers to the lifetime of the vehicle (normally 13 years from date of manufacture). Ford Thinks are almost 12 years old at time of this notice. That means there is one year left on a lifetime warranty. Read the fine print. Would you trust someone that intentionally misleads you about their warranty?

I warranty clusters for one year from date of purchase and warranty is transferable.

Superior Support and Service

In the event that you install one of my clusters' and find you have another issue with the vehicle: You can call me at the number listed above and I can talk you through a diagnosis. If you are not electronically inclined, I can speak to your mechanic, and simplify the diagnosis. Weak plug connectors, faulty chargers, bad contactors, and harness breaks are common but repairable. I include free of charge phone diagnostics to ensure proper function of any cluster or cluster service purchased from me. I have over 40 years of hands on automotive electrical experience, and several years of Think diagnostic experience.
