    Yep, see SergA'a post above. You'll need a 98 or 99 gauge cluster. Run a single wire from the single connector sending unit on the side of the head (under the distributor) to the C2 connector on the gauge cluster.

    Wow I got replies. With solutions. Thank you.

    I need a 99 cluster?

    No, I never solved this.

    lol it doesn't happen often on forums anymore.
    Yep, need a 99 or 98 cluster and run a wire from the thermo sensor directly to the cluster. You can add the thermo sensor if your head doesn't have it, I made a post on how I wired mine up for my H23A swap here

    Will changing the clusters effect the anti theft stuff? Does the immobilizer or key functions get disturbed?

    This is great, I 'm gonna get this one finally.

    Part ordered off ebay. Local U pull it, turned up empty nothing that specific.

    No changing clusters will not do anything with the immobilizer but what I can suggest is that when you do the cluster just take the whole motor, needles and faces and swap them to your cluster and that will keep your original mileage. I have done this with the 01/02 coupe gauges (grey faces & red needles) in my 98 sedan all I had to do is repin in the coolant needle to the correct spot

    Looks like it might be necessary, they sent me a broken one. How do I swap the Coolant gauge only? That part might still work. If I can bring it onto my cluster, and that will do what I need in the end, it could work out.

    The 00-02 coolant gauge pins are in a different position from the 98-99, they won't work in each other.

    That is unfortunate.
