Default 06 STi Gauges Into 06 WRX?

Hi!

I've got an 06 STi Instrument cluster coming for my MY06 WRX, and i was just wondering before i pull anything apart, is there anything i should know about fitting these? or any tricks?

Hopefully *fingers crossed* it's PnP... place i bought it from said it is... so hopefully they were correct.

Regards,

SiriX

i remember reading something about the sti cluster not being plug and play. something about the buzzer or something always going nuts. i think minor modification is needed. i could be wrong tho. (it might just be the 04-05 sti clusters). at any rate, best of luck with the install. please let us know what you find out!

Ok... so initial reports... not looking good...

Here's the issue at-hand...

This photo is the 06 WRX's Left-Hand (if your looking head-on towards the road, an the dash is infront of you as it normaly would be) Connector...



This is the connection on the 06 WRX Dash



And this is where it doesnt connect... here's the STi Dash's connection



So basicly there's a couple of extra pins on the STi dash, and they've changed the connector slightly so you cant just plug in the WRX dash...

Regards,

SiriX

ok so mine arrived today. I'm going to try and get it working. I'm looking for the 06 wrx and 06 sti cluster wiring diagrams to see if I can figure this out. Another idea would be to get that green connector from an STI and connect the wires where they are supposed to go and try it like that.

Any ideas?

Also I connected 2 out of 3 plugs and there was a loud buzzer sound. Everything that was connected worked. No ABS light but obviously the Rear diff temp was lighted.

Any idea what the buzzer is?

Would a '06 WRX cluster be PnP on a 2.5i? I want that center tach.

06 STI cluster on a 06 WRX didn't have any ABS light come up. Before I bought this one I had an 04 STI cluster and the abs light came up. I sold it to somebody with an 02 WRX and it didn't have the ABS light come up.

I have a friend with an 05 wrx that installed a 06 STI cluster and he went through the same things that I did. Which means that 05 and 06 STI cluster fit the same way on an 05 wrx and a 06 wrx.

04 STI cluster work best on 02-04 wrx although 04 WRX require some additional modification since there are buzzing sounds as well and also something about the ebrake I believe.

hi quaam, I'm thinkin of swapping a 06 STI gauge cluster into my 06 2.5i Impreza.

Did you get that wiring diagram you mentioned?
If so, send it ova plz
So how did the re-wiring go? So you connected 2 outta 3 plugs only?
What wires did you leave out?

I connected all three plugs. Like Sirix posted above, the leftmost plug (for fuel and temp) is a different size for the wrx and sti. 05 and 06 WRX have the same plug and the wires in the same order. The 05 and 06 STI have the same plug shape and wire order as well. I got a 05 STI green plug from a dismantled 05 STI at a junker. The green plug still had the wires from the harness connected.

I downloaded the wiring diagrams for 05-06 wrx and sti from http://techinfo.subaru.com/html/index.jsp . According to the diagram the manual transmission 05-06 WRX uses 6 wires( AT uses the same wires except that there are additional wires for the P,R,N,etc) , which the 05-06 STI uses along with several more for the DCCD.

This is how I connected it:

1- I identified the colors which I was going to used from the WRX connector plug.

2- Found and identified the matching colors on the STI connector plug (from the junker)

3- Using wire cutters I removed the WRX plug from the harness, leaving enough wires connected to the plug ( just in case I might need these wires in the future) and in the harness.

3- Using the wiring diagram, in order to verify the wire's purpose, I proceeded to connect each wire from the WRX harness with its matching STI plug wire and used electrical tape. You should only have 6 wires connected from the harness into the STI plug. The extra wires on the STI green plug were taped together so that they would be out of the way.

I don't have pics on me but I will try to get some.

As for the buzzing sound, The module controlling this buzzer is on the rightmost plug and the wire that you need to cut on your 06 WRX harness in order to disable it is
c9 which is identified as Body Integraded Module in the wiring diagram.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Look through classifieds or go through the cluster color change tutorial. That will let you use your stock gauges, but takes a hell of a lot of work.
