    not sure if you know but to be clear the 'without leads' designation on the DIC switch connector means no terminals or wires, just bare plastic connector body only

    Correct understood. Ill use the wires already there just repin the plug and I'm sure I have some terminals laying around which I can use to add the extra wires for HUD control.

    Good thing you thought of (and re-did) that XLR otherwise you wouldn't have the needed parts.

    Re: Project HUD

    Interestingly, after changing the settings in the IPM/RIM, there was no change in the operation of the HUD. I can tell you that the car will set a DTC for an incorrect number of modules detected on the data bus if options are not set correctly. I'm not certain exactly what other functions the configuration information controls, in light of this new information.

    As for the RCDLR, there is an option to Enable/Disable the Secure Car feature using the Tech2. This option was only found in the 2006+ STS menu choices however.

    That's something I wanted to hear! So I should be able to test wire it up and see if it works. Now l find a location to easily access all the wires needed to splice into the HUD plug.

    Wonder why my dealer told me when going in the tech 2 under an 06 they could not turn the feature on...?

    Re: Project HUD

    The Tech2 menus are quite a bit different for the 2008 than the 2005 and 06 I looked at. I suspect this may have something to do with it.

    Re: Project HUD

    Some members have had dealers say that their 2006 STS didn't have the feature only to later find another dealer to enable it. Others have tread the path of your quest without joy but there's always a first time. Good luck.

    Re: Project HUD

    OK

    with Daddlers help and removing the speedo I can confrim the cavity is there and set up for ALL cars to accept hud and it does not in fact mount to the carrier but an aluminum subframe which mounts to the firewall which is also PRESENT on non hud cars, with the holes for the projector mount but it is missing the threaded inserts to actually bolt it down....

    The differences in the dash carrier only appears to be a cut in the upper plastic for a window to project the hud, this I passed on purchasing the carrier to keep costs down and will opt to simply use a cut wheel to cut the window myself

    I did note and I believe Daddler mentioned this that the vent tube which runs to the left side vent does in fact appear different, thus Rippy I need to add that vent tube to the parts list, its the large plastic vein which directs the air flow from the air box to the left most side vent. I am assuming you can confrim there is a difference between one with and without UV6.

    Thanks guys for all the help so far!

    Re: Project HUD

    There may in fact not be a different duct. You will be able to tell if you remove your instrument cluster trim and instrument cluster. This will give you a clear view of where the HUD should mount. Looking at some of my other photos, the HUD doesn't appear to extend past the aluminum frame to where it will interfere with the HVAC duct.

    Hard to tell could just be the angle





    Let me know if you happen to dig up any photos of your dash carrier out of the car where the hud hole is. Really do appreciate all the help Daddler!

    Unfortunately I don't have the other pic you were looking for. Tried to PM you, but your inbox is full.

    Nope, I think that will be okay.

    IT WORKS!!!! Installed the 2008 rcdlr in my sts today. Install was easy programming for the fobs and then clearing the ECM to learn the rcdlr password took an hour but the secure car feature works PERFECT on my 05 sts.
