Quick question...

Post by dvon17 » Fri Apr 13, 2012 7:23 am

ok, first off... I couldn't find the info that I was looking for on the matter so I decided to make a thread...

The guage cluster in my car is the basic, non-tach cluster.

I want the one WITH the tach... Crazy thing is, I bought one before and the mileage was not only off but so was the gas. (I figured the mileage would be and I had no problem with it (especially since it was under 100K :lol:

My question is: Was the gas needle off because my car isn't supposed to HAVE the cluster? Or was it just off because the cluster was a P.O.S.? lol. I'm thinking of going to grab another one when I get off of work in 30 mins since it's only $14 but I don't wanna if it's not gonna work. Thanks in advance!

Probably just a bad cluster if your current gas gauge works fine.

You shouldn't have an issue with the brake light like the R/T and SRT clusters then.

I did lol. I couldn't handle it. There's been no light on since I've had that car. Well, with the exception of the Check Engine light which was a result of me accidentally unplugging the MAP sensor when I put in a new radiator and when I seafoamed my engine... but I used the OBD-II @ my job to clear it lol. Thanks tho guys. I already like this place lol. Now off to sleep for an hour before working a 17hr day/night :-(
