ive just completed a level 3 conversion and everything works beautifully , including the interior light and delay...

now for the 1 problem ---

on the overspeed i have no chime function- the spd light lights up but no chime..

did some searching found out possible some early model clusters had no speaker where the old reset button should sit

mine does not have one - does anyone know if i can put one any where there and what to connect it too - otherwise i guess im off for newer cluster or live with it

Cheers
Ben

the chime is built into the cluster on the l3. To my knowledge there is no wire outside that to cut into and add a chime. At best you can pull the cluster apart and try to addone, but it is going to be easier to just swap a new one in.

yeh from what ive sorta figured out so far vn s1 level3 dont have one - looks like i lucked out - waiting for shane to message me back - may be a simple fix which i can then help anyone else out with - from wht he describes im looking for 2 small holescentre bottom on PCB with which a small lead comes off and the speaker is on that.

My PCB has this small holes (I think) and am waiting to see if they are it - if so easy fix just solder one in

Sorry to say - you have an early PCB. VP cluster will have it (chime provision) as will a VQ unit.

They also have press remote instead of REV.

It's more like a solid type thing with 2 prongs on 1 end and a little hole on the other end - mabe 2mm in dia. You may be able to solder the chime PCB bit on to your cluster - but would it still chime?
