Question Put 05-06' Gauge Cluster in my 03'

Does anyone know how to wire the 05/06' gauge clusters with the "HALO" amber rings into my 2003?

I heard that it's not as simple as "Plug n' Play". Is this true? Since the Tach and Speedometer are SWITCHED, I'm guessing that's what's causing the problems...?

If so:
Can we HARD WIRE it. It surely can be done, just don't know how...anyone???

Calling all experts!!!

I remember it being a major hassle and costing more than it was worth when they first talked about it

Thumbs up

I talked with a couple members and they said they "Have no Clue, where to even start with a project like this".

Here's the deal guys:

Even if the wiring is different from the old one to the new one. It's
1.) Still the same car. It's not like we're trying to put in a guage from a entirely different car.

2.) Once someone can figure out which wires are which -- we can "splice" them into an 03-04 car...

I'm willing to buy a 05-06 guage cluster and take it to some guys I know that can figure out ANYTHING. I'll see how much the cluster is and how much they are going to charge me. Once I find the answer, I'll share.

If anyone wants to help me with this project that has interst in doing this "MOD" themselfs, please help donate to the 'cause'. My Paypal is: [email protected]

Trust me, I'm not going to take money and run. I'll put the money $5 here $10 there, towards the cost of these guys figuering the wiring out, then everyone can enjoy!

Thanks,
-WoW (WhiteonWheat)

P.s. This WILL happen!

All the guages are electronic anyways. They should all just connect to the CAN bus or something like that, shouldn't it?. I can't imagine why it shouldn't just plug in.

It's not like the new guages have different indicators than the old ones. It shouldn't matter that the tach and speedo switched sides. I don't think each component has it's own connector. Isn't there just one connector for the whole thing?

But I'm just ranting, so I have no idea.

connectors are completely different. You will have to rewire it.
