svt gauge cluster in a ZX3

I've look and found user of what I need.
I don't have the cluster yet (in mail), will it all hook up and work, including the oil gauges?

If I recall correctly, none of it will work... At most, the main cluster will work, but the aux. gauges will not.

Aux gauges wouldn't, and you have to figure out how to power those to get the backlight of the main gauge section working.

There are old threads on using an aftermarket transformer for the luminescent backlight at least, hopefully that still works.

Lol... I have left and right coast saying nope. I guess I have to get wrenching and figure out how to make it work (low budget), and show that us Midwesterners love a challenge!

It arrived!
Couldn't wait, installed it in 20min. It all works (that pugs in). The abs and brake light stay on, the oil pressure & oil temp gauges don't plug in. Going to see my speedo guy next week to fix odometer. Going to hit u-wrench it this weekend, see if i can find a wiring harness from a svt to fix it all. I'll keep y'all up to date.

Check out my thread from a long time ago on here for using SVT gauges in a non-SVT Focus. It's possible and you can get one of the aux gauges working.

I have "Torque", a android app on my phone. I was using it to check the gauges to make sure they are working correctly. The speedo is off about 3%, but everything else is good. I ran the fault code reader next. "BANG" P0460;
can be caused by the installation of aftermarket equipment such as remote starter systems and auxiliary fuel tanks.

Ford offers a remote starter system which is recommended. If the vehicle has an aftermarket remote starter system, it would need to be removed / disabled before diagnostics for P0460 can be started. Auxiliary fuel tanks that continuously replenish the vehicles main tank will cause a P0460. Customers that replenish the vehicles fuel tank from the auxiliary fuel tank while the key is on and engine is running, can set P0460. For vehicles with an auxiliary fuel tank, it is recommended not to use the gravity / continuous fill style auxiliary fuel tanks. It is recommended to add fuel to the vehicles main tank with the key off.

NOTE: P0460 CAUSED BY AFTERMARKET EQUIPMENT/VEHICLE MODIFICATIONS IS NOT COVERED UNDER WARRANTY.

Ran "Torque" app, thus code came up. No engine light yet.
WTH?

SVT Cluster

there is an easier way to do it, I have posted it somewhere on the forum. I have a SVT cluster, It works great. You must buy an inverter from speedhut and then wire it to the 2 red wires on top of the SVT cluster as they are the auxiilary (oil presuure and somthing else) outputs and supply power to the svt back ligghting.

Here is the Link. Look at the bottom of the Page.
