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)

My primary language is Spanish, although I read a little English (visit the United States several times) is not my strong point.

What I meant was that the cruze had no screws and the opel had them.

some screenshots of the notices shown on DIC. Including a perfomance menu that shows several parameters and includes lap time and acceleration.

What's left, excepting maybe the orange lighting?
Exactly! change the orange light!

A query, some knows what the LEDs that I frame in the following photographs are called.

They are strange leds generate light sideways. I have to change them by some white LEDs to give me blue light on the screen.

So with the white led, I could not get the blue led, but the final result I liked a lot.

Excuse the English, how did you calibrate the speedometer? Since the original panel was up to 270KM / h, and the new one was at 220KM / h. Many thanks, congratulations for the work, I think I'll do the same.

He used the new panel’s electronics so it was already calibrated and everything.

To calibrate the speedometer, edit the eeprom, put an original of the car, for the speedometer.

Para calibrar o velocímetro, edite o eeprom, coloque um original do carro, para o velocímetro.
[/CITAR]
Muito obrigado, há muito tempo queria fazer isso com o painel do Cruze americano, mas este é muito mais barato e é a mesma coisa. Eu já comprei para EBAY, apenas esperando para chegar. Obrigado.

Thank you very much, I have long wanted to do this with the American Cruze panel, but this one is much cheaper and the same thing. I already bought it for EBAY, just waiting to arrive. Thank you.

Hernan, puedes explicarme que has cambiado exactamente?

Has quitado la placa electrónica del cuadro del cruze y has metido la placa electrónica del opel?, coinciden los agujeros y todo?
En España cuesta barato los velocimetros del insignia, pero veo en las fotos que el frontal no es igual al del cruze y no sé si coincide todo.

Dónde has comprado los leds? los he visto en usa de la empresa kingbright pero es muy caro el envío a españa. No se pueden poner los leds de la placa del cruze en la placa del opel?
Y una ultima pregunta, qué datos hay que meter en la eeprom?, el número de bastidor del cruze?

Gracias.

From Google Translate:


Hernan, can you explain to me that you have changed exactly? Have you removed the electronic board from the cross box and inserted the electronic board of the opel? Do the holes and everything coincide? In Spain it costs cheap the speedometers of the badge, but I see in the photos that the front is not equal to the one of the crossing and I do not know if everything coincides. Where have you bought the LEDs? I have seen them in the USA of the kingbright company but shipping to Spain is very expensive. Can't put the leds of the cross plate on the opel plate? And one last question, what data should be put in the eeprom ?, the frame number of the cross? Thank you.

Welcome Aboard!(y)

Please use Google Translate or some other such software and post in both languages if you wish, but at least post in English.

Utilice Google Translate o algún otro software similar y publique en ambos idiomas si lo desea, pero al menos publique en inglés.

No need for an apology. If you want, post in both languages. We all want to "hear" what you have to say.
