Default 03 Glass Cockpit mod

So, the speedometer in my Vue failed (seems to be either the ECM or BCM. My mechanic brother says he doesn't see it being the ECM, and I don't want to have to deal with programming a BCM, but I can still read the speed off of the OBDII), so I'm toying with the idea of modding it to have a glass cockpit (all the instruments on electronic displays in the cluster). I'm going to run it with a Raspberry Pi, and I've got the CAN hardware on the way to start experimenting with it.

I'll document my progress here, and may chime in for assistance from time to time. First thing that I'm surprised to have so much trouble finding: does anyone have the pinout for the instrument cluster connector?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

I attached some diagrams for you. Also FYI if you are seeing speedometer off the OBDII diagnostics. Then it's the instrument panel that is bad.

Thanks for the info!. Yes, after prodding around under the dash a bit the other day, it does appear that it was probably the servo not making a good connection to the board, it's working now. That said, I'm still going to keep working on this idea, just because I think it's a cool mod, and should make for a fun project.
