  • Civic guage cluster

    Hey,

    Anyone know anything about Honda Civic's?

    My stock dash doesn't have a tach, and I want the factory look.. If I get a cluster with a tach anyone know if it will just plug and play even though I don't have a tach now? Or am I missing some required hardware?

    I'm thinking it's probably in the wiring harness, but i'm not sure...
    Thanks.

          hehe. I'm just kidding.. nah.. I think I'm going to head out to the salvage yard tommorow.. see what i can find.. the Haynes manual for the car gives me promising info... the blue wire is the tach.. so if it's there.. i suppose i'm in business.

            Let me know how you do.

            I have a '95 civic dx coupe with no tach too and I was thinking about doing the same.

              schrodos - there are a bunch on eBay... I think they are just plug and play, according to one of the people on honda hookup

              FWIW, 96 is the first year of the new cluster, but you'll know what's yours and what's not.. Mine is easy to take out.. 2 screws for the bezel, and 4 screws in the cluster, unplug, remove. 5 minutes tops.

              Here's one that would fit your car.. Honda Civic Speedometer Cluster Tach 92-95 - he said 96 in the title, but 95 in the description. Milage is sorta high.. suppose it depends on what your car has now.

              Only bad thing is that these are going for like $100+ on eBay. I had a junk yard quote me ~$50 for one, so i'm going to try there first.

                Works. I picked one up from the junk yard.. Don't know how much they regually run, but I got a good discount. Plugged it in, works like a charm.

                    Hey nester,

                    Looks better... I just bought an indiglo white face set off ebay for my 93 civic ex and it looks awsome! Really easy to install and cheap!

                    Check it out!

                    I found that I could power it off the cigarette lighter plug because it also has the ashtray light which comes on with the lights

                      Yeah. I've seen those.. I'll probably get those in the future, but I've got some actual maintenance things I have to do first. Brakes, Belts, and some misc other stuff..
