  1. Officially switching it up. I’m keeping ‘03 models in mind now.
  2. Well...I was getting closer to buying one and then a work trip got cancelled. I was going to check one out in SD next week but, now that event, flight, and all is cancelled. I'm going to think over the expense vs. convenience factors.
  3. I looked online at the service manual for the temp coolant sensor: At 168F '99 should be 47.5-56.8 k ohms After '99 should be 2.1-2.6 k ohms At 248F '99 should be 14.9-17.3 k ohms After '99 should be .62-.76 k ohms
  4. Thank you for clarifying. So the analog temp gauge working comes down to the resistance of the coolant temp sensor? And if only the resistance at the gauge is changed, then it could possibly be made to work within range?
  5. The digital dash sensor? I'm starting to understand what's going but, which digital dash sensor are you talking about possibly leaving in?
  6. Been racking my brain all day with posts trying to understand the things going on the background. I think I'm starting to understand now and was likely chasing my tail today due to a number of other factors. So, is there a way to calibrate the temp gauge?
  7. OK. So then I'm trying to understand, how have the correct water temp sensor for whatever dash is used, and having the correct thermo switch would cause a problem for fan triggering. Here's a quote from the other forum. So that explains what Rockme was saying about the temp gauge not working, I think. So then the question would be, how does a temp gauge get calibrated?
  8. One thing I'm confused out is the "temp sensor". Is everyone talking about the water temp sensor? Or is it some other sensor?
  9. That's just about what this other guy is saying https://www.cbrxx.com/threads/change-cluster-from-digital-to-analog.49673/
  10. I was actually looking on the internet for a comparison when this thread came up in the results.
  11. A post on going from analog to digital. https://www.cbrxx.com/threads/dash-upgrade-99-to-05.9447/ After reading it, I wonder if I just need the cluster, temp sending unit, wiring sub assembly, and thermo switch from a '99-'00 to put into an '03
  12. I've got the same conversation going on at the other forum https://www.cbrxx.com/threads/change-cluster-from-digital-to-analog.49673/#post-639529 The mention of the analog using two sensors, one for temp and another to start the fan has me going deeper down the rabbit hole of figuring this out.
  13. lol not quite. I am seriously considering an '03 and have eyes on a decently priced '99-'00 instrument cluster and the sub-wiring assembly. In theory, I could use a '99-'00 temp sensor? Or are they different plugs?
  14. 6-7 years ago we got word from my dad and uncle that us cousins had an aunt we didn't know about. They had been contacted by a lawyer that was retained by a woman who was adopted in the 40's. They met her and did their own research before telling us about her. Allegedly she was the daughter of my previously deceased grandmother and their half sister. A few months later I bought a 23andme kit and a few weeks later got the results. Who was tagged on there at 10% related and likely my aunt? That woman.
