[h=3]I have to replace instrument cluster on my holden cruze bought a second hand one on ebay

Not really sure what needs to be done but I think I need to take it to Holden can anyone tell me what need to be reprogrammed and why?

Is it because it's for a different trim/engine/transmission? (Mine is a CD 1.8 Petrol Auto)

Is it because the ODO has the wrong KM's?

Is it because the BCM and cluster need to be linked via a VIN or some other security feature?appreciated.

Any information would be appreciated.

Cheers

Hey Woodsy welcome. Just read Holden is terminating 30 dealerships today.

Managed to download that Russian supplied European shop manual, around 100MB as I recalled after doing a virus check on it. Was so different than the US version, deleted it.

US version does not even contain a microcontroller, just a series of all kinds of inputs from different sources, LED lamps, tach and speedometer are voltmeters. Kind of fail to show the power supply circuits.

So what's wrong with yours? Entire display is dead? Read some of those posts, kind of like the blind leading the blind, without a microcontroller, nothing in there to program, but this is the US version. Older speedometers had a speedometer cable connected directly to the driveshaft, they worked with the ignition off.

US version has a dimmer control if not outputting a voltage would get nothing, this could be the problem. So is your cluster the culprit or the victim? Also energized by a point contact relay, could have dirty contacts.

Sounds like you replaced your cluster with another, still dead? Not even one LED lamp lit? Sure have enough cables feeding these things, can be a loose connector or corroded contacts. Wonder if that European shop manual is still on the net, going back about six years.

What year is your Cruze?

Because there are non-subtle differences between the JG and JH, models, not just that the JG was built in Korea and the JH in Oz.

Your VIN will also tell you, the Korean-built ones start with K while the Oz-built start with 6.

If it's Korean, you might be able to find a copy of the shop manual on-line.

Either way, you can pay your USD20 for three days access to https://www.acdelcotds.com
and print out the instructions for changing it.

That will also, presumably, tell you if you have to have the replacement instrument panel programmed to work with your BCM.

Welcome Aboard!(y)

The OP has not been online for about two years. May be hard pressed to get an answer from them. You are better off to start your own thread in the Gen1 Audio & Electronics section.

Don't forget to introduce yourself and your Cruze here.
