    I'm not sure if this is the proper place to ask this question
    So here goes.
    I am trying to repair the clock in my 2000 Honda CRV. The Internet provided a link for the solution and I tried it. Well it took me 3 tries before I got the soldering well enough for the clock to work but once I reinstalled the clock it began to smoke and emit a lousy odor. After opening the clock up again I found that the item is a diode, the circuit board has the diode symbol next to it. There is an identical diode beside the fried one as well. Beside both of them inscribed on the board is “S154” and on the diodes is printed “14 95”. I’ve tried to google both S154 and 1495 with and without the word diode and am getting nowhere. can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong? I am including 2 photos showing what i am dealing with. Thanks for any insight.

    As unfortunate as your problem is the AAC terms of service prohibit automotive modification topics.

    S154 will be the pcb marker for the diode, only diode i can find is Mp1495,

    This strikes me as a repair, not a modification, I'll discuss it offline amount the other mods.

    I think it should be closed, so discussion will definitely be needed. For now I close the thread preemptively.

    An agreement has been achieved and the thread will stay closed, following Chapter 6 of the ToS, on automotive modifications.

    I 'm really sorry we can't be of service.
