Default Circuit board gurus/opinion

02 Sentra, temp gauge, it has been dying over the years, has been dead for a while, since the heat has come to town (110-117) with the car sitting outside all day, the gauge works when I go home.. but not on the way to work, I am assuming the board is swelling (if you will) and reconnecting a broken connection.. seem feasible ? or any other thoughts???
thx

You could remove it and reflow the solder joints that are accessible

What he said.

Either that, or figure out just how to hit it, like The Fonz. Hey!

Pull it out, see if you can/can't fix it and go from there. Might be you can find a replacement at a junkyard...

...or what "THEY SAID"! ^^^^^

Probably at least as bad as a Jeep so worse than a cow.

Install a 12V heater in the dash to heat the gauge.
