: Trying to identifty a cluster...

03-13-11, 06:01 PM
I recently purchased an instrument cluster. My dealership tells me it's for a 2009 STS only. I'm trying to determine if anyone else out there has the same one. It's a little different than others I've seen so far...

It is a non-US cluster (km/h and MPH are swapped so km/h is at the top).
It doesn't show the word "BRAKE", it uses the symbol as we would see it on a Canadian cluster.
It reads up to 260 km/h or MPH.
It has a shift indicator (PRNDM) below the speed indicator needle.
It has no markings to indicate it is for a 'V' series STS.
When scanned, the Tech2 indicates the module was built in 2003 (early prototype?).
Some DIC functions seem different than those documented in the 2009 manual.
Part number is 25858433

Anyone have some thoughts? Personally I really like the look of it, but it probably isn't going to work for my needs unless I can scare up a VIN from a Canadian (or ?other export) STS manufactured below VIN break 90112958.

After looking at dozens of pictures online, it seems this is a European cluster. Makes sense... after a closer look it seems to have an indicator for rear fog lamps. It does seem to work in my car perfectly (for all 2008 model year functions). The one I have just doesn't seem to fully support speed alert/speed advisory available for 2009.
