1996 Rav4 AWD A/T 3S-FE 5 Door
Alright so my 1996 Rav4 has had no tach and an inaccurate speedo (about 20mph under actual) since before I got it (its been in the family for a long time), in addition to the faulty gauges my trip meter is extremely uncooperative, it will not reset below 90 miles (if it even resets at all) and takes multiple pumps to reset. I currently use the car's OBD-II port with my phone and a BT adapter. (which does show my revs and actual speed and revs so I know my ECU can see these values properly). I was wondering If it is possible or If anyone has done a 1998 cluster retrofit into a 96 rav4. I have been looking into the 98 and 96's diagrams for the cluster respectively and don't see a reason why (since my Rav has fewer indicators) I cant just route the wires accordingly and leave unused bulbs or indicators open. I find the digital ODO and trip meter very appealing and I have found the listings for the 98 clusters to be cheaper than most of the 96 clusters. Any help/ or alternatives would be greatly appreciated.
