  1. EUREKA!!!!! Dumb mistake, well not really, but I didnt fully slide over the two computer pins on the back of the gauge cluster. I didnt want to force things and break the pins, after I broke the cam locks. I checked everything CJ said, then went back, took everything apart, and thought, well maybe they slide alittle more. Sure enough they moved about 3mm more in, and everything worked fine. Put it all back together, and VIOLA!!! Except the front turn signal still doesnt work, so maybe I just blew the bulb? My friend said the same thing happens in his B'Mer, that it is like a signal to the driver when the signal clicks at a faster pace, a bulb has blown. As far as the red gauges, yes I bought them from FVD. I'm pretty sure when I bought them, there were ones for the 987. Only thing is the RPM gauge does have GEMBALLA across the top, but I dont mind, I respect their products, and I really just wanted red gauges. Plus they were on sale for like $35.00 for the RPM. Thanks for all the help THOLYOAK, JP, and CJ. Thats what these forums are really for, teamwork, friendship, and saving a buck or two by DIY!!!
  2. Well Tholyoak sent me both the plastic housing and the cam lock attached to them. I carefully removed the cam locks, and put the on my original wire harness connectors. Perfect right??? Wrong. The gauges still dont work, the dash lights dont come on when I turn on the headlights, and my front driver's side turn signal wont go on. This all happened right after I disassembled, and re assembled the gauge pod. So I thought maybe I blew a fuse....Nope, checked them all, and no blown fuse. When I engage the left turn signal, the rear turn signal works, but at a fatser speed than normal. The right turn signal, front and rear, work fine at normal clicking speed. I hope I didnt ruin anything!!! Please someone help me!! oh, and thanks THOLYOAK for the parts and fast shipping.
  3. I removed the gauge cluster to swap out my black gauge faces for red ones. while doing this, i broke all three white clip attached to the wire harnesses on the back of the cluster. They would come out for , well you know, so ofcourse I trried pursuading them with a small flat head, and broke all three. Can you replace the white "cam" clips? When I plug in the white, black, and blue connectors now, nothing work, I'm assuming because there is no direct pressure holding them in. If I push them in and hold them (the blue connector) with my hands and turn on the lights, the dash lights up. but once I release pressure, they go off. Part#'s???
  4. It looks great!!! Any a little bigger, like the turbo? Think about hooking it up to the turn signal relay? That may look cool too.
