I just got my (supposed) Ex/Si automatic cluster today and installed it on my Dx. I noticed there wasn't a VTEC light on the cluster, I thought there was on the EX/Si--did the bastard send me a Lx cluster? It has cruise control, all that shit, and it had one extra green plug in the back of the new cluster, I didn't have it on my wires for the Dx. I am always paranoid about stupid little shit... :angry:

Yup. No factory clusters have VTEC lights on them- who ever told you that they did?

0-10 is always going to be iffy on any speedometer...

Don't flame me! j/k..I dunno, I thought there was a VTEC light on Si clusters...and because my mph sticks from 0-5, it throws my whole mph off...CAI kicks in at 38 mph for me, it says 42 on new cluster (yes I am that goddamn picky!)

WTF!! i just swapped it mine in yesterday.. it was working fine.. now the tach doesnt move. it pretty much broke.. im i dont gas it i can shift through the gears without it moving.. but if i drop it a gear and for example its reving at 4grand the tach shoots to 6 and just stays there. anybody got any ideas???? im doing some research right now.

What do you mean, "kicks in"? Your car doesn't take in any air until 38 mph? I highly doubt that. Remember the whole thing about needing fuel, AIR, combustion and spark for an engine to fire?

200 civic Si cluster green plug

So I just bought a 2000 Si cluster that says is a direct swap into my 98 dx. however my car does NOT have a green plug that goes into the back of the gauge cluster, and when I turn my car on everything works fine except the check engine light is on. does anyone know what this green plug is for? from what I have read from searching the 'net it's for cruise control, so how would that affect my check engine light? if it's any help, I recently installed a exhaust system and due to a short wiring harness (I will be extending it later) one of my O2 sensors is unplugged. could this be causing it? thanks for any and all help :)
