there is proabbly something wrong wtih teh cluster then....everyone else i've ever heard of on thsi website who has done the conversion, it has been totally plug and play. Where did you get the new cluster from?

will a 96 EX 5 speed cluster be a direct swap into a 97 DX 5 speed ? Or, are the swaps only direct swaps if the clusters are from the same year ?

Thanks

It should be a direct swap, they're the same body style

your lucky too, having a 6th gen you can roll back/ roll ahead the miles so they match, with 7th gens its digital so i had to write down my miles and stuff, and therefore voided my 1800 extended warrenty haha i at least got my money back!

so you are saying if I swap out the cluster that has the digital mileage...it would not retain my mileage from the original cluster?

also I have a 2001 civic will swapping out the cluster from a DX to EX will work for me?

thanks

This is a thread from 2007BTW

Did you read the thread? Post #3 says the following:

I have an '02 civic DX.. I too wanted the tach. If you can find an EX OEM instrument guage cluster (no need for whole "dash") for the same year(s) (say 01-03) and you follow instructions above, it is plug and play.. no extra wires needed, plus it's cheaper. If you buy just an aftermarket tach you will have to do some extra wiring (those are the ones you see on the pilar and dash).. seeing i didn't do this I am not too sure how it's done, but if you use the search function here it will help..
