Digital Temperature Gauge Question.


Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm wodering is my car (02' boxster S) have the digital temperature gauge show in the picture?

Mine have nothing under the mileage.

My service guy told me only earlier model (>2000) have temperature gauge.

I really doubt it. :angry:

Your picture is a dot matrix cluster for a car with the OBC option. Your cluster has a segmented center display because you do not have the option. Two different clusters.

But you can still do the retrofit. Your car will look like the one below. You need to do the retrofit with the stalk or switch because the OBC displays are shared with the trip odo. Without the stalk or switch you have no way to cycle through the displays, so all you would see is the trip odo.

The 1997-2000 cluster is different. On those years you could have the OBC turned on and see the outside temp without the stalk or switch. That is what your mechanic was trying to tell you.

I am trying to get my 98 Boxster to be able to read outside temperature. I do not have the 4th stalk going to the OBC but I do have a sensor located in the face of my cooling air duct on the passenger side. I read a posting that shows how to activate the temperature gauge which is located at the lower area of the center gauge. Just like the picture above. I have been looking for that posting for three hours during the last two days with no luck. Would you please be so kind as to help me locate this document. Thanks very much!
