Instrument panel cluster replacement

Does anyone know for a fact if the G6 instrument panel clusters are VIN-locked like the Saturn Aura clusters are. Have you actually had success installing a used cluster & having the odometer work? It could also be different for different model years since the G6 goes back to 2005. Thanks for any input.

The odo is BCM based, not IC based

That's also true for the Aura. For the Aura, the BCM maintains the odometer count but the IPC keeps a record of the last count received. If you swap in a used IPC the odometer will not receive any updates from the BCM due to a VIN-lock programmed into the IPC. GM dealerships deal with a third party company called Specmo for swapping broken Aura IPCs. Just wondered if the G6 does this differently.
