Not completely the same - the diffuesers (warning lamps) are different between the VN & VP. You can move the 3 wires needed to fit a VP cluster to a VN (level 3)

Have you got the 3 dash plugs up the right way? Double check the green wire (temp wire) Also check the cluster voltage regulator in the cluster - it may have some cracked solder joints.

If all checks out - remove the beeper from the front of the cluster. :)

No you cant just cut the beeper wire. The beeper is removed by taking it out of the cluster :)

The temp warning light is on becasue the cluster is not getting the correct voltge for some reason (temp gauge working correctly).

I suspect you may have joined the green wire to the wrong green wire in the loom. Check this wire continuity from the 4th plug to C3 #3 on the dash plug.
