Re: Convert MPH -> KH/h and temp F -> Celsius

There is another option, though I don't know how realistic it is. They sold the Baja in South America where they use metric and celcius. If you could find the cluster from one of those....

That's true if your outback is of the sedan variety. The wagons have an extra pump for the rear washer.

I think 3 months, they are made to order, total cost was $995
So, $995 USD shipped to your door?

Re: Convert MPH -> KH/h and temp F -> Celsius

The sensors are the same. You can replace the tach and speedo cluster, but there is a chip on the cluster's board that needs to be reprogrammed to convert between imperial and metric. This is the service that G-Rom performs. He can also set your cluster to whatever KM you need also.

Re: Convert MPH -> KH/h and temp F -> Celsius

You will lose all the baja specific lights on the dash if you go with an outback cluster. I took one apart and checked, they don't exist on the outback.

Re: Convert MPH -> KH/h and temp F -> Celsius

The units (kph and celsius, etc) are in the cluster and not in the ecu.

I don't know if an outback cluster would work, maybe?

Re: Convert MPH -> KH/h and temp F -> Celsius

Yes on the mileage and maybe on the temperature.
Look up G-ROM on facebook. I've had my JDM GC8 gauge cluster converted to mph, and my Baja's cluster converted so the tacho reads an H6 engine properly. G-ROM did a great job in both cases

Re: license Plate Wiring

Disconnect the battery before you do anything.

Use these waterproof butt connectors to resplice the cut wiring.

You pull the gauge cluster, take one of the burnt bulbs to an auto parts store for identification, and replace with new.

Ps. You posted in a thread advertising a Facebook page.

Re: Auto Window Hack

I'm adding heated mirrors to my Baja, I wonder if this switch interferes with that, or precludes you using them? The button for heated mirrors goes in that blank spot immediately in front of the window switches on the driver side.
