Yeah you definitely could swap it, the clusters are plug in play so you’ll have no issues there. For the street if wheel if you find the stuff for it all the wires should be there.
Well, after doing some research of mine, I found that most value leader cars don't have all the wires for it, I only have 2 wires that's for the horn, and some for the airbag. Here's the original thread:
But apart from that, do I need to reset anything on the new cluster once I buy it? (i.e. oil life, milage, trip... Or is that all plug and play? I'm assuming if it is, then the trip, oil life, and everything else, is stored somewhere else on the system, and the DIC is just the interface to access that info.)
I'm not to worried about the buttons just yet (I think I've found a way to do it, just need some time and money), I first want to know if the cluster's are fully plug and play and don't need any reprogramming of any kind. My G6 has no factory keyless entry, cruise control (except for an off brand model), no xm, nothing. So my current DIC doesn't have all the options you would have in most different G6's (i.e. when the car gets locked, if the headlights flash, will the horn beep... stuff like that). So I'm hoping this doesn't change anything, I'm planning on getting an aftermarket radio (preferably a double-din head-unit with all that new tech stuff, but I think I already talked about that).
Really hope I can do this one day! (I'm only 16, this is my first car, and I NEED a job, so this is all just an assurance for future-me who might attempt this project one day).
