It has nothing to do with the DiC. I would also not assume it is simple replace. You may have to flash the body control computer. I have a Mustang and hang out in those forums. Ford made three interior trim levels for those cars (2005-2013) base, deluxe and premium. The premium level had full instrumentation (fuel, charge, temp and oil). There were guys with base and deluxe models who went to salvage yards and picked up a cluster from a premium model and were bummed when it wouldn't work. Apparently the computers weren't recognizing the cluster as belonging in the car. They had to go to the dealer to have them reflash the BCM to have it recognize the new part.
    Yea. I think this might be the case. I just did the swap with a cts v cluster. The whole cars electrical system is going haywire. Service air bag service suspension system. Tach needed delayed. Radio staying on after power off doors open. Buttons not working. Maybe need to have a dealer flash it?

    Oh, I was fully expecting to need to go to a dealer for a reflash, im familiar with low level computer systems and how desperately they depend on proper, agreed exchange of data. To make things more complicated I'd probably also have to request that they roll the odometer to match the car's, since the miles are stored in the cluster itself.

    But... How do you 'request' a reflash from the dealer? And how much might that even cost?

    Better double check on that. Not saying that's not true, but I have read around here that the tracks are different.

    Maybe contacting a dealer would give you both answers?

    Heh, I guarantee they're going to tell me to buzz off unless I say the right things and talk to the right people, hence why I'm asking here

    You may have an easier time finding an independent shop that has an OBI-II and is familiar with the process. A local tuner should have the cred.

    No option will work until he buys a CTS!

    No he doesn't own a CTS. He's just wasting space here until he gets serious and buys one that isn't a totaled wreck (because he'll then keep posting trying to find out how to get it running at our expense of time). Here's a challenge Joe, buy a CTS that isn't totaled or a salvage car!

    Joe,

    The fact is that you don't own a CTS, but you keep posting asking questions or putting up posts that MIGHT make people think you know something about a CTS.

    Yes, I am an adult and would be willing to help those that truly need help. You don't because you don't seem to be willing to pull the trigger on a CTS other than one that needs work to get it in top shape. Tell me I'm wrong, I have been before! Challenge on!

    Your warm and charming friend, Marv

    Talked to dealer and a company that does this work for the dealer. It will take a tech 2 to program the cluster to the car. Even then it may not work because some clusters are unable to be reprogrammed after a certain number of miles.

    Well, yeah, I'm not going to be in a car buying position until next month. As I've mentioned multiple times.
    And I prefer to wrench my own cars instead of turning my nose up at any mileage over a hundred thousand, and throwing my hands up and sprinting to a dealer the moment I hear a rattle from the back.
    I mean shoot, there's plenty of BMWs with very high mileage since their owners know how to take care of and work on cars.

    Thanks for that. I'll start asking around tuning shops for a tech 2 and get some more data from em'
