Hey quaam, did you get any photos of your wiring? Am about to do it this tomorrow.

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.

Hi Rexter, able to share where to purchase the 05 JDM STi optitron meter? Thought of getting one myself too.

Am looking at these 05 STi gauges for cheap...almost too cheap. Is there any ways to get the STi gauges repaired possibly. Am worried that Fuel or some other guage is messed up and doesn't word right.

Hey quuam,

I was just wondering if you still have those wiring diagrams, I have an 06 Sti cluster im trying to swap into my 05 WRX. I was thinking about just filing down the fuel/temp connector and plugging it into the 06 sti cluster and just leaving the two excess pins on the right side of the female connecter alone. Let me know if this will work, or if I have to get the wiring from an 06 sti junker. Thanks.

Cliff

i installed an 06 WRX Sti cluster into my 05 WRX. All you need to do is file down the one peg on the 05 WRX wiring harness so it can be slid in on for the fuel/temp connection on the 06 Sti cluster. Also, they Sti cluster has 2 extra pins which cause a problem, but all you need to do is file down the one peg so the Male connecter from the 06 Sti cluster can fit into the Female connector of the 05 WRX wiring harness. You just plug it in and leave the two extra pins unconnected. Hope this helps...

Which wire do you cut on the right plug to disable that annoying buzz? In that diagram the "c" wire's were on the left plug, I filed down two tabs on the left plug to get it to fit, the middle and right plugs fit fine but the odometer went to zero, the r. diff temp light came on, and it's buzzing, I don't care about the zero miles cause I remember how many miles I had on the other odometer, I'm sure I can ignore the r. diff temp light, that buzzing will drive me nuts, how do I turn that off?

Scooby Mods will have the info for wire cutting. As for the temp light, I am having the same problems. I was told that unless you have the temp sensor like the STi's have, it will stay on. I KNOW there's a way to turn it off. That link tells of a way with electrical tape and grounding. I didn't understand exactly how to ground it, but electrical tape did NOT work for me. As for the rest of your issues...no clue, sorry.

Does anyone...quaam, know hos exactly to ground that R. diff temp light? Or at least get it to turn off? I'm also having issues with a correct outside thermometer reading. I live in Texas and it's telling me its 45 outside right now.

alright i got my 2006 sti cluster and wires in the mail today and went ahead and installed it. pretty easy to do. by matching colors on the far right clip and making a ground for terminal B4 for the rear diff. and cutting c9 to get rid of the buzzer. oh and the last thing is swap terminal b28 to b16 for the cruise light. everything works great except my outside temp says its 43 no matter what the temp is. gonna have to look into this one.

I haven't found a fix yet. A couple of people have told me I need to install a temp wire, but clearly I already have one since my stock cluster had the temp. Does anyone know what every wire in the WRX and STi are for in the harness???

i thought about buying a new sensor from an sti to try that, its clearly getting a signal or it would be(--F) instead its giving me a temp thats about 40F off from the real temp, Biker921 does your car have auto a/c?
