Unfortunately the Proms cannot be switched over there basically an all in one its also the controller to the board..I was trying to do that with another Cluster I got a while back for my other focus and basically killed the prom :( as soon as I plugged it in the gauges went berserk and got all dash's on the odo.. I reverted the proms and got the odo to read but the gauges on both clusters refused to work

I kinda got lucky on mine tho XD
Orig was 219170
Scrap yard one with tach was 219193 <-- nearly crapped myself when I saw how close

to be honest I couldn't care less if it was reading 500,000 I am about to remove the odo period I dun like the color and im gunna cap the clusters opening

if I actually get around to a SVT Swap the mileage will be WAAAAY off and technically they cannot register mileage on a car that has an engine it was never sold/offered with heheheh

hahahahah yeah its all good I will get you a rundown on what wire to tap for that cigarette lighter light to work properly :)

thats weird tho I looked at every Foci in the scrap yard and everyone had a light ring around the lighter heheh I think you may have lost a wire behind the dash or it broke

all you would need to do is to locate the feed to the radio where it supplies power to the backlights when the headlight switch is turned on
