2000 L-Series 2.2L Sedan
Default Successful Instrument Panel Upgrade (pics)

Well I posted around that I ordered 03-05 Cluster for my 2000 LS1, I got it in today, and for 23$ I got what I expected, a cluster with the dirtiest scratched up lens I've ever seen..

Not to worry though! I transplanted the lens from my 2000 LS2 cluster I bought at the junkyard to replace my original cluster that bulbs went out on me and I found it easier to just pop a whole cluster in rather then try to pull bulbs off a whole cluster and insert them into my original cluster.

When I pulled off the Lens on the 03-05 Cluster there was dirt on the gauges and dust so I had to clean that up. I put on my cleaner lens and installed it for a test run.

here are the results:

Facelift @ 192k Miles lol. As stated on other threads it was a direct bolt in replacement with no wiring needed, you pull the 4 bolts on the trim, pull the trim out, and pull the 4 bolts on the cluster, tilt wheel down and pull cluster out.

Now for the help I request?! Im used to the self explanitory lights of the 2000 cluster, (change oil) (low traction) etc. Does anyone have the explanation sheet for the 2003-2005 Cluster, I figured most of them out but im confused on a few of them.

Thanks,
Matt

I did some detailing to the lens and it looks great. I have to say the ODO readout on the newer clusters look brighter then the older ones?

EDIT: Looked at the lights more closely, found the change oil soon, trac, reduced power (v6) shift up (manual) the 2 check engine lights, DRL is still out but my relays modified so the DRL dont work
