Default 2002-2003 Gauge Cluster Swap from STI

Hi everyone,

I have read about 30 pages on this and have read different things which is the reason for posting this. It seems there is not a direct thread or sticky on how to take an 04 gauge cluster and put in into a 2002-2003 WRX. All the other threads are from other years and it can misleading.

I have posted the following to help people out as I am about to order a 04 STi gauge cluster.

If any if my info is incorrect, please, please let me know for me and others!

1. Buy 04STI gauge cluster (less work than 05)
2. Cut B28 wire (yellow wire with a green trace to avoid shorting out fuse in radio)
3. If you want to be able to dim, you must follow post 20 from this thread:
http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show...dm+sti+cluster
4 . If you want Outside Temp to work instead of just reading a number in the 40's at all time, then follow this link: http://www.scoobymods.com/sti-versio...ight=sti+gauge
5. And lastly, if you want to get the Rear Diff Light to go off, you must follow this link: http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/showthread.php?t=926620

Also, if someone could post the diagram for the 2002 WRX and STi gauge cluster, it would greatly be appreciative.

Thanks,
Justin

I'm digging this thread, I'll def be using it when I decide to swap mine. Just wondering, but how much the 04 cluster set ya back?

And yea, I've looked into it too, not too many are as organized as this one, so props to you on that.

^ That is not a bad deal on the JDM V7....I think it is the kph-factor that makes these less desirable in the US (especially for a DD).

I like on that listing how it states "8k RPM redline !" so even if your motor has a lower redline will this cluster will magically change things?

I have no interest in the JDM ones as it is not in MPH plus they do not look anything like the USDM STi ones the sweep and light up amber.

The gauge cluster runs about $330 used (give or take).... Also can someone please update this with the diagram to show the wires that need to be cut?

Was doing some browsing and I remembered that I was going to do a write up of this... So rather than double post, I'll simply contribute some pics of what needs to happen. Keep in mind that I've simply cut the B28 wire to eliminate the radio fuse from shorting.

Here you go:

Remove Bezel (two screws on top and two right in front towards the bottom)



Remove screws attached to original clusterwhite tabs,)


Unplug: (there are three green connections... unplug all three):




Cut the B28 wire: (green/yellow. this will be on the middle connection harness)


Prep wire: (you can skip this and simply tape them off with electrical tape)



Reconnect the harnesses and reverse your steps on putting it back in...

Don't mean to get too thorough, but I know there are some that want all the help they can get.

Default Sti Cluster Swap

Hi All!
I have just swapped a JDM- sweeping type gauge cluster(180kph) for a South African - sweeping type gauge cluster(260kph).
The gauges are Identical apart from the kph. Both are off Blobeye.. Both with DCCD.

My problem is even after trimming the locating tongues(to allow my clip to slide into 260kph cluster) on the left sided(facing front of cluster) harness, the fuel gauge, temp gauge & DCCD don't work - also the ABS light stays on..
Can anyone please help with a mod for this?
