I'm only concern with the fuel and temp gauge working. Can you tell me a way to test them?

x17 (blue connector) pin 18 is coolant temperature sensor (temp gauge).
For fuel I don't no yet because I don't ordered Pro Gauge yet but I will investigate and report soon...

Yes i know but the cluster have 2pins for temp sensor,  one is input and another is output.

What wheel are you planning on using in your cockpit?

I have a logitech g27 wheel to complete the set

In fuel and temp gauges i'm talking about the signal because the own cluster send the signal to a variable resistor and returns to the cluster again.





I can't tell you the colour because i don't have the right connector.




But:

White Connector:

Pin 2: cluster light / dimmer
Pin 19: - to ground
Pin 20: RPM Sensor signal
Pin 22: +12v (30) permanent (hot all times)
Pin 23: +12v (15) use a switch to on/off (hot in run)
Pin 24: - to ground

Blue Connector:

Pin 3: - to ground
Pin 4: +12v (15) use a switch to on/off (hot in run)
Pin 5: +12v (15) use a switch to on/off (hot in run)
Pin 15: the same as the described (image)
Pin 16: +12v (R) use a switch to on/off (hot in run)

Black Connector:

Pin 3: - to ground
Pin 4 : Speed sensor signal

with some research i knew the +12v (30) needs always power, and now i'm trying to figure out the difference of the +12v (15) and +12v (R) but i think it varies depending on the position in the ignition.

IGN position:

0: off
1: acc
2: run
3: start

If i discover i post it ASAP.

Edit:

+12v (R) is position 1 (acc)
+12v (15) is position 2 and 3 (run & start)

So if am i right according the diagram with this you can test your cluster. (you need 2 switch's to do this, acc only for 1 switch, and run & start to the other)

+12v (30) permanent power
+12v (R) position 1 (acc)
+12v (15) position 2 and 3 (run & start)



Step 1. Press and hold the mileage reset button.

Step 2. Put key into ignition switch and turn position #1

Your LCD display will show something like this "tESt 01"

Step 3. Once "tESt 01" is shown, let go of reset button and the IC
(Instrument Cluster) will go through
some test cycles. Numbers will be shown and here's what they mean:

1st display: BMW PART NUMBER (6 digits)
2nd display: CODE NUMBER (5 digits) Internal Coding Plug #
3rd display: K NUMBER (4 digits)
4th display: CHASSIS NUMBER (5 digits) this is part of your VIN
5th display: SOFTWARE VERSION (3 digits)
6th display: REVISION INDEX (2 digits) Hardware #

After all 6 displays are finished, an analog gauge test will be performed.

Connect only the input (pin 18) to Pro Gauge for temp gauge ;)

And pin 17 connect to ground? Or leave without connection?

Out of context is some way to test with a potenciometer or something the temp gauge?

Thanks btw for the help.

 Thanks Jadran.

My scheme works the same way as your's with some upgrades "trying to turn more realistic" to do funcions like the cluster test for example.

When i have my pro gauge i'll show the results ;)

Edit:

+12v (30) permanent power
+12v (R) position 1 (acc)
+12v (15) position 2 and 3 (run & start)

With this you can only run a cluster!
NEVER used as a key in the game unless the button box (without power).

I hope that you know  :)
