I want to show you how I upgraded my dashboard, from a Chevy Cruze with Korean specifications (VM motori 150 hp diesel engine) to one with a DIC that displays more information.
What we are going to need is a new speedo cluster (in my case it came from an Opel Insignia (GM Europa) I bought it in Lithuania for a few dollars. It is from a car with right hand drive and the speedometer displays miles instead of km. So in my case I need to change the screen display for my current Cruze.
You will need an eeprom memory reader. I used this one - EEPROM Reader
You will need a 7mm Allen key to remove the 6 screws that hold the dashboard in place. There is information in the forum about how to remove this here: How to remove Dash Bezel, Speed Cluster or How To Remove Instrument Panel(Cluster) For Cleaning
You will need either a torx bit #4 or #6, I do not remember which.
The new dashboard is easily disassembled and has 4 torx screws and also has a few clips. Treat them carefully because they are very fragile and will easily break. (I am not sure what you mean here: "the cross did not bring the opel if,")
Once the board is disassembled, we look for a 8-pin eeprom memory chip on the back of the board and there we connect our memory reader, and we read the data. The first line contains the VIN. Just replace the number with your car and iits ready to go. I did not change anything else but that number.
Reassemble and connect the reprogrammed speedo to the vehicle, the BCM will load the km's that are stored in it to the new dashboard or at least so it did in my case (the new board had less km than those stored in the bcm, now I know how it would be if it were the other way around)
This was the original speedo cluster that my car had.
And this is the upgraded version (I have to change the led on the screen to blue, I do not like the orange very much)
