I'm thinking this might have something to do with it since all 2006 sti's are auto a/c, my a/c is also a manual a/c. The ambient temp sensor is tied in with the auto a/c according to my wiring diagrams. But I'm still hoping that i just need an sti sensor in the front. it's weird that the temp never changes from 43.

Let me know if you end up getting it, I'd like to know if it works. Was thinking it was something in the wiring, but didn't' know for sure.

Hey guys,
I got a question. I got the Brake lights and ABS lights on. My car is an 04 wrx w/ 06 sti (cluster). Do you think it's okay to drive the car with it on? I know it sounds dumb but just in case.

Also, has anyone figured how to get the abs lights off? can anyone help?

Has anyone tried to do the manual A/C to Auto A/C swap? I'd like to know what all it entails and roughly how much it would cost time and money wise...I've got the dials and cluster for an 05 STi and I'm trying to get them into an 03 wrx.

Wrxwhip, do you have any pics of the file job? I've got an 05STi going into an 03wrx that is being a major pita. Any recommendations, anyone?

just did an 07 sti cluster in an 07 wagon..

Really easy:
  • Trim the 2 green parts on the left (A) plug so it can slide on.
  • Move B28 wire to B16. (Cruise)
  • Ground B4 pin (Diff light)
  • Cut C9 wire (buzzer)

I don't know if I'm retarded but the reason I wanted the STi cluster in my MY06 wrx is for the rpm buzzer notification. I don't get on my car that often but when I do I find myself paying too much attention to the rpm's and it's taking away from me paying attention to the driving. I want the buzzer but I notice everyone saying you cut C9. Anyway, to the people who made the swap; why did you swap it? Are their some benefits I'm missing or negatives I'm over looking?

Gabriel-

P.S: is there a way to get the full STi wire harness from cluster back so you don't have to shave anything off?

My shift light an buzzer works fine after cutting c9. Trimming the connector to the cluster is really easier than it sounds, i only trimmed down 1 little tab and it fit fine, took about 30 seconds. It will still plug back into your old cluster if you ever want to switch back.

Just curious since most of this information pertains to the 05+ cluster, are the 04 STI clusters easier? I just happen to get on of those with the cluster harness as well

I just made a spreadsheet with the pinouts from the 06 WRX and 06 STI Cluster scematics. What everyone has said so far is accurate. The A plug on the STI seems to have two extra, unused pins lol. If I am correct, that would mean they are there for NO reason. I will try to post the spreadsheet as an image....otherwise, I will just post a link to my storage.

One interesting thing, however, is that I THINK I can get the IC Sprayer Tank level warning light working. I need to look at the B plug in my car tho to see if the Auto Tranny wire is there on the MT model....I suspect it is. Even if it is not, there is a way Worst part would probably be running a wire from the trunk mounted tank to the cluster.

As for temp, I have no idea yet...but then, I still need to get the mileage adjusted on my STI cluster.

I dont have an answer, althought I THINK I have seen it on here somewhere. I DO know that with the airbag system, if ANY part of the system is not detected, the entire system is disabled to prevent accidental discharge of the airbags. This is why I cannot remove the clock entirely for my gauges, but have to stuff it in the dash. The stupid airbag light comes on because the clock has the passenger airbag light

Thanks for the clear, specific, and very helpful directions.

The only realistic way is to get the car side of the plug out of a wrecked STI....unfortunately, most of this stuff gets sold as a complete harness.

The 04 cluster is the way to go. I just installed one in my 07 2.5i. Pluged in and no problems with a buzzer. Still have the abs light and the diff light, but that will be gone when I do the rest of my STI swap in Feb so for now it works!

How many of you have checked to see if your gauges are working correctly after doing the swap?

I had to move alot of wires to get mine to work. Trimming and moving one wire was not a option. Everything but rear diff works on mine.

Does anybody know how to dim the 06-07 STi cluster? Mine doesn't work with the dimmer switch and it doesn't have an "ILL" adjustment by pressing the odometer.. Any help appreciated.

I swapped in an sti cluster into my 04 wagon and the only problems that i have is that 1- I don't have the temperature sensor so the temperature always says it's 43 degrees unless it is really cold and it will say 25? not sure why it changes and 2- The rear diff light is always on(no rear diff sensor in my car so it makes sense) and I can't adjust the brightness of the cluster...other than that it was plug and play.
