Quoted from djblouw:

So, it's looking like the aux lamp board has a address issue. It's either coming one of the chips has failed, or it's not getting the data correctly. The first would be remedied by a new aux lamp board. The second would be by re-pinning the connectors, and reflowing the headers.

New aux lamp board is on its way. I'm feeling comfortable re-pinning connectors now, just waiting on a shipment. You lost me at 'reflowing the headers' tho

you already reflowed the headers, when you tried fixing the dry solder joints, the separate solder joints on the rear connect to what is called a 'header', the male part with the pins in a row.

the female part is the connector with the wires attached, in your case IDC's (insulation displacement connector)

New aux lamp board solved the problem. Thank you all for your help & guidance!

What should I be doing with all my old boards? Sell or toss?

Woohoo. Good job.

Keep them. You can learn to repair them now. Next time you won’t need to go out and buy a new one.
