Reproduction Of Original Printed Circuit Located Behind Dash Carrier Correct Plastic Unit With Flat Copper Photo Etched Wiring Replaces Commonly Burned Or Broken Originals Requires 15 P/N 651130-Sold Separately Essential For Proper Gauge And Dash Light Operation Does Not Include Plastic Bulb Socket Clips NOTE: Because of the vast range of different printed circuits used in 78-83, please verify you are ordering the correct unit by using the GM number imprinted on your original circuit before ordering. This reproduction is of 25016702. After 1969, all 1978, 1979, 1980, 1981, 1982, 1983 Malibus were equipped from the factory with printed circuits behind the instrument cluster instead of a harness to operate the gauges and lights. Not only was it more cost effective for the factory to use a Malibu printed circuit, but it saves space, weight and reduces the ?rats nest? of wires typically found behind your cluster. Your 1978, 1979, 1980, 1981, 1982, 1983 Malibu printed circuit is simply a piece of plastic with conductive copper material embedded in it. Unlike solid hard computer printed circuit boards, these boards are flexible, translucent plastic sheets which operate in the same fashion by conducting electricity to the different dashboard functions. This G-Body Malibu printed circuit can act as a fusible link when using the wrong fuses in your fuse block leading to damaging and costly breaks in the circuit. If your gauges fail or the instrument lighting seems abnormally dim, your Malibu printed circuit may have gone bad. To easily check this pull your printed circuit and hold it up to a light, you should be able to easily see the break. Be careful your old flexible plastic board might be brittle and rough handling may lead to more substantial damage. If you don?t see yours listed, make sure you let us know. We should be able to get it!
