full renix cluster gauges


Recommended Posts

hey guys, i just installed mine few days ago and finally tested it and noticed rpm is dead, fuel act weird and battery didn't do anything so maybe i hook some wires wrong?

 

there only 2 wires that didnt attach are white thick wire(12-14gauge) from wiring harness and blue/w white or yellow trim (14-18 gauges from cluster gauge connector. those neither wires aren't available to match.

 

 

do u guys know what those wires r for? white as for seat belt alarm? blue maybe ignition or tach?

I'm confused. What's this about splices and extra wires? The cluster swap is (or should be ) 100 percent plug-and-play at the dashboard. Take the old one out, put the new one in. The ONLY changes necessary are to replace the temperature sender in the head and the oil pressure sender next to the oil filter with the senders for use with gauges.

 

Did you cut and splice wires under the dashboard?

Eagle, someone hacked out the factory harness connectors and tossed them while attempting to use a '96 cluster. I sold him a Renix Cluster I had, and cut out the 2 connectors out of the Renix to sell to him. Apparently the truck I got the connectors out of had a slightly different wiring layout than the stock ones to his truck.

yeahthat.gif also i noticed that renix i got from your mj... that mj is which a automatic while mine is manual so maybe those wires from renix r for auto wiring harness? :dunno:

 

 

 

anyway... I'm back from autozone, they don't have parts but other place does so they will shipment to my autozone by tomorrow. :ack:

22 dollars for total plus tax. :) cheaper than i thought i was think it should be like 30-40

 

edit: sorry guys my cluster gauges work now by miracle! since i just remove the cluster and check connector to see if it updown or not then i checked the wires again to see if I'm right hook them up. then cranking the engine... click click... damn battery. jumped it with my subaru :roll: import helped america truck... how embarrassed is it. cranking again and finally started, rpm worked! fuel i dk its said about half, battery. little under the 14 v. oil pressure. obv way off haha and ect....... wth??? its work? its climb up slow?

 

btw my rpm running seem low. way under 500rpm?

You are reading the tachometer incorrectly. The photo shows it reading approximately 550 RPM. The first mark above the bottom is 500 RPM.

well its look like under 500 to me haha well is that normal for mj? my subaru idling about 500 to 1000 depend on outside tempature

That first tick above the zero IS 500 RPM. Your needle is pointing slightly above the 500 mark. Idle spec IIRC is 650, so you're close.

 

alright good but is there anyway that i can recalibrate or something like that?

Yes, it can be calibrated ... but you don't know if it's wrong.

 

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Most clerks at Autozone don't know anything. He probably figured they're all the same.

 

I have three Autozone stores in more or less an equidistant radius around me. Out of the three stores, there's one guy who works at one of the stores during the shift when I usually can't get there who knows anything. The rest of them are total ciphers.
