Hi all just a couple of questions.
I have a lvl 3 dash in a VS Calais.
Does the computer retain the milage reading or is it retained in the dash cluster itself?

Also the Tacho on my level 3 dash is out by quite a bit, (I think it's still a 6cyl tach, as the car was previously a S/c v6 & was converted to V8 by previous owner).
Can the tacho be adjusted by tunning the computer, or does it need to be replaced?:hmmm:

:unsure:

KM's are stored in the cluster.

Im not 100% but i think the tacho will need a certain resistor.

KMs are stored in the trip computer part of the cluster and can be swapped if you get a replacement cluster. The tacho requires a 220k resistor and 2 others need to be moved to convert to a V8 tacho.

You can just swap the tacho out into yours.

Thanks I'll keep that in mind as i've got to replace the instrument cluster for the wifes VR 5lt now.
I just need to check a couple of things on her dash before I organise one.:hmmm:

Thanks again Tezza, :clap::beer chug:
