BUYING: Digital gauge's

My temp and fuel digital gauges are going, they are very dim and then go to nothingness, even with the second turn of the key.

Replaced the alternator and swapped the battery, no good.

This is a common problem, and everyone is saying their's burnt out. My best bet is mine will do the same very soon.

Ebay has none, and I can't find the OEM name for it on honda part sits, so I'm willing to buy one off somebody.

I don't need the whole unit, with all the service lights and such. JUST the fragile looking gas / temp chip. I'll post a picture if needed.

Anyone have an extra? Or know a site I can get one?

Re: BUYING: Digital gauge's

FYI: I believe the issue is the on board power supply for the backlight.

If anyone has a burnt out set I will see about fixing them for you...(expiremental repair) this would save TON of money in buying replacements.

Re: BUYING: Digital gauge's

There's a junkyard with a prelude in it (10 days old) that I'm going to check out tomorrow morning first. See what I can find. If it's been stripped I told dbd I'd gladly purchase his.

Regardless of that, I'm willing to pass my old one off to MissPrelude. Note: Its not completely burnt out, if you stick your face close to the dash, and crank the key to second, you can see it for a brief second, very dim, then it'll dim to nothing (off?). So its "going" I believe.

MissPrelude, go ahead and PM me an address to send it to you. I can have it out by tomorrow / wen at the latest.

Re: BUYING: Digital gauge's

Ooh, dbd you have some interesting parts on your part-out. I have a 93 si, jdm h22a swap. I don't like my half white non-digital dash. I may be interested in your tack set, if it'll work in mine (simple swap out?).

Also, the previous owner told me the AC worked he last knew, just the AC switch was bad. After ripping apart my unit, there is no "switch." The button is directly wired to the circuit board. If your little AC light comes on when pressed in, I may be interested in that as well.

Again lets see what the junkyard yields, I have a feeling if any import junkie walked by it, its nothing but a shell now.

Re: BUYING: Digital gauge's

It's been argued that Honda set the vtec engagement point at 5k for a reason. No problems with it engaging at 4?

I'm new to the scene, so I'm still learning. But some people said the spin of the engine isn't fast enough to safely kick it at 4. Any truth to that?

I know the new vtec's kick in at what, like 2.5? i-vtec, but of course that is a different engine. Just a though.

That's true, but once you start changing the motor, wouldn't it make sense that the engagement point would need to be changed to accommodate the new mods?

I would say adding mods to the engine would allow it to tolerate a lower engagement point, but not so much as it would need it any lower.

If I understand it, you CAN drive the vtec without ever using it. lol I've made the comment seeing old lady's driving 5th gens. What a waste.. -.-;

But thats my 2 cents.

To bring it further, what exact mods would need to be done? Cam shafts?

General consensus, at least from the people I've talked to, is once you have all the bolt-ons, it would be a good time to tune. From a purely performance standpoint, any time you alter the amount of air the motor intakes/expels, it should be tuned. With a good intake, header, and a larger/portmatched TB, you could probably gain somewhere between 20-30 horses with a good tune. There's more to be had obviously, but it starts to get very expensive with our H-motors.

Ah alright. Thanks.

AEM v2 intake, megen headers, apexi n1 exhaust, and skunk 2 tb are all on my list.

I hadn't thought a tune would be helpful until serious work was done, but I'll get one done.

Re: BUYING: Digital gauge's

Everything looks good, except the Megan header. If you're dropping the cash, try to get ahold of the HyTech Replica header (or the RMF or Bisimoto units if you're really baller). The Megan header isn't going to be much of an improvement over the stock exhaust manifold, except in the aesthetics department.

Re: BUYING: Digital gauge's

I don't believe there are "distributors" for it, so to speak. But you can usually get ahold of one through Honda-Tech. If you have an account there, go over there and ask around. If not, make one, then go over there and ask around. I'm sure someone would be willing to help you. The price on them isn't bad either, especially for the gains. You're probably looking at $300-$350, which isn't bad compared to the $200 you'd spend on a crappy Megan unit.

Re: BUYING: Digital gauge's

the only reason a resistor would burn is because something exceeded its current handling capabilities... so no, just replacing the resistors won't correctly fix the problem. They are simply indicative of another issue in the circuit.

Re: BUYING: Digital gauge's

this is where troubleshooting comes into play. It could be a surge from the power supply, a bad capacitor, anything really. More than likely a combination of devices to cause such a failure. Resistors can take a lot of abuse. To a point.

Re: BUYING: Digital gauge's

The junkyard lude was stripped. v_v; I did salvage the glove compartment door and the gas lid release wire (both of mine are broken).

The dash was completely gone though, so I'll be getting dbd's and sending lilmissprelude my old one.

Out to take it out now.

Re: BUYING: Digital gauge's

The chip is out. Famous burn marks on the right side.

Really easy to take out.

-Remove the passanger speaker case
-Unscrew the one screw next to the glass
-Unscrew the top plastic peice spanning the whole dash
-Pull lightly on glass, pops out
-4 screws hold the 3 main circut piece
-Bunch of tiny screws behind that hold in the 3 chips, comes right out

****ty directions, ah well.

Here it is:
(Sending it off to missprelude this afternoon)
