    so i pulled the entire gauge console off of my buddys 90 si hatch, and was wanting to put it on my 89 DX, but i saw that there is an extra harness that plugs into the si cluster that is not ran on the DX, i plugged in both clips and started the car, and the temp. and gas gauge did not work, would anyone happen to know any way i could wire somethin up for them to work?

    i think there is a difference in the 88-89 and the 90-91 gauge, because yeah on his 90 si there is three plugs, but on my dx there is only 2 plugs ran, and it only accepts 2 plugs

    88-89 hatch plug and play 88-89 crx or si hatch gauge. wiring is different in the 90-91's. I think you might be able to wire it up anyway, but its easier just to start out with the 88-89.

    KrisB is absolutely correct. These gauge panels are completely different.

    i never would of thought that the clusters would be different...only thing i would think of being diff is the splines count for the trans
