For those having to remove the pointers and remount them Mark at www.accutach.com has a page http://www.accutach.com/Pages/GeneralHowTos.aspx that shows how to use a 12 volt power supply and a wall wart power unit to calibrate your gauges...

Lots of data for gauges, and he is very helpful if contacted.

You might find my thread converting to a Mustang Cluster helpful:

so im looking at picking a one of these up but i dont want to if its going to be a headache to install. reading through this and some other threads its seems as though all it would be is simply splicing on the analog connectors in place of the digital ones, is that true? or is there more involved?

Does anyone know of a way that I can just swap out the tach portion of the MM cluster to my CV cluster, replacing the temp and oil guages.

Its possible as long as the MM tach pins fits into the cluster housing in place of the temp and oil gauges. T

If you have the MM tach then where is the rest of the cluster?

I have the whole cluster, but thought it might me easier to just swap the tach into the CV cluster, Then mount an oil and temp guage into an A-pillar pod.

The actual electronic back of both clusters is differently wired and routed, not sure if that'd work.

Swap the entire cluster. It will be tedious work but in the end it is definitely worth it.

Quick question, on the pin swap PDF, it sways to extend 2c-5 to 1c-16 for a ground. Now, 1c-14 on the vic wiring is a ground, can that be used instead of extending the wire from the other connector?

Alrighty then, time to bring a dead form post back to life.

So I just completed the MM cluster swap in my 02 lx sport. Speedo and fuel work fine,however the engine temp gauge pegs itself at max the moment the cluster gains power. I've tried figuring out where I went wrong but idk. Any help would be appreciated

-Hank
Ps I know about the tach I'll get to it eventually I already had one in the car, also how does one add a picture to a post?

To add a picture, you'll need to use an external host, like Imgur or the equivalent with direct linking for forums.

Regarding the temperature gauge, I'd verify you're hooked up (or the appropriate pin is set correctly in the connector shell) for the appropriate feed from the temperature sensor. Sounds like the feed might be grounded.

I had all sorts of weird issues when I crossed up the 'Door Ajar' input from a body ground when I did an invasive cluster swap. Having the door locks cycle with the turn signal on was a new one. smile

Definitely might be a simple fix.

Well, I'll have to look into adding pictures at a different time. I looked over the pinout before and thought I had it right, but after reading your post I laughed and realized thats what I had done. I swapped a ground and the temp input wire pin slots, as the temp input has to cross to the other connector. Thanks for your help
