LoL, Ford isn't going to recall minor problems on 7 year old cars, no matter how much griping we do. Unless it's a catastrophic failure or safety issue, it's our problem now. Most of the issues (including the electrical & interior problems) are minor and occur only on the 05 year model as it was the first truly new Mustang model in years, before the "kinks" were ironed out.

Ford resisted as long as possibly 10-15 years ago when it came to recalling the Firestone tires and people were dying over that. No way are they going to be bothered dealing with simple problems that cause a little aggrevation.

Looks fried in the pictures but it's hard to say. Have you tried taking it to someone that repairs electronics. There's also places on line that rebuild them for $180.

Re: Is it fixable??

I just replaced one of mine and had never soldered before. Thankfully for me it came out perfectly. Looks like your solder points aren't right (shouldn't have big ball of solder) and looks like you may have put the soldering gun right on the circuit board and burned it. Maybe try resoldering it correctly and see if it works before swapping it and spending $?

2005 GT owner that shows how he did it:

Here's the great soldering video that helped me:

It's looks like you may have burned a trace. But a computer board geek could probably solder in a jumper to go around the burn trace and repair the circuit. They use jumpers all the time or they used too before everything was disposable.
