Even the white is probably red backlit.
From what I have heard, it's not. The white cluster is just white backlit if i'm not mistaken. I have also considered getting the pure white cluster and just swapping the LED's, but that sounds like even more work than just finding the cluster I want to begin with...

Is there anyway you could send me these pictures. For me, it said they were unavailable. Thanks
If you are talking about the pictures on how to do the swap, no one has been able to find them. But I did post a video earlier in the form on how to do it. Just do a YouTube search of title of this thread

I bought the new wiring harnesses for radio. I have all the speaker wire colors down but there are so many other wires going on in there.
If you can help that would be great! I happened to take a few pictures of the wiring when I had it pulled apart. I'm not sure if I can upload it here or not.
Also do you know if there is an antenna adapter I can buy? The newer radios are a bit different. I
did you end up installing a 2009.5 radio in your car? with the big middle button?

Just curious. What makes a cluster "Canadian"? On my US cluster you can switch between metric and imperial.

Sorry, I should have been more clear. In my research utilizing the average Google search, and GM Manuals I've procured data supporting that there are at least 4 Guage clusters in existence (likely 5 total) that have been mass produced, either under the authority of GM or otherwise. In the 2010 Pontiac G6 GM manual on page 4-25
18126

(later referenced on page 4-38)
18127

and then again on page 4-33
18130

Leads me to believe that the fundamental difference between the two is the number and letter font, oil temp symbol locations and the feul guage symbols. However this is just an educated theory until one has photographic evidence. The guage cluster I purchased has the larger font numbers, smaller "G6" in the tachometer, silver half circle, "Canadian feul Guage", and white numbers and DIC. Additionally, my cluster is stamped "Made in Canada" (as upposed to "Made in Mexico"), however my temperature Guage is in Fahrenheit which leads me to believe that it is a Canadian production for the United States. Long story short this is why I reffered to my cluster as "Canadian Guage Cluster" (the fuel guage configuration and stamped Made in Canada)
I appreciate your question.

Hi
Dx ,, the obvious difference the numbers. Our cars are faster, consequently we need bigger numbers .lol. Not really faster but there is 1.62 kms in a mile. Personally, I don’t like it. I switched one of my cars over to it. I find it hard to read (too busy). I will switch it back to the original.
asap

Now that you have the Cruise Control Switch removed you can remove it from the bezel and swap in the new 2010 Cruise Control Switch.

Looking at the back side of the switch there are 4 little clips that hold it in.
I marked them with red arrows:


You can use your small flathead screwdriver to move those tabs just enough for the clips to release. Push up on the buttons from the bottom as you pop the clips loose, I started on the left, right, then the top.

Once removed you're ready to swap the new switch in:


The new switch fits the bezel perfectly:


Now you just have to move one wire on the Cruise Switch Connector.
Looking at the connector you will need to remove and replace the light green wire in pin #6 (it goes 1-7 from right to left)


Next use your small pokey stick to press the tab marked by the red arrow. As you press it down pull on the green wire until it slides all the way out:


Once the pin is removed, I recommend pulling on the little tab slightly to ensure it'll stay in the connector when it's replaced.
Pull on the tab marked by the small red arrow, You only need to pull it out a very small amount.


Now with that tab facing the same direction as when it came out, Slide the connector into pin slot #1, Be sure to push it all the way down until it clips in, Give it a tug to make sure it won't come out of the connector:


Now you can connect the Cruise Switch and re-install everything back into the steering wheel:


When popping the air bag module back in you have to push hard enough that the horn will sound.
If you didn't disconnect the battery (tsk tsk tsk) be prepared to hear it beep.

My 2007 model does not have cruise control, the buttons are basically a figit toy because they will not be plugged into anything, and when you click on them, they will not do anything.

Other than that, there's always the white ones, but i just really want to avoid white led cluster if possible.

View attachment 17668

Hope that makes sense.
I have a 2005 G6 GT with a red lit speed and oval display version of this. I really want to swap for this one with white backlit speed and then change needles to blue or leave the red. But all the long info display clusters I see on ebay are the ones with the thick grey bar with notches for the increments. Does anyone know the part number of this cluster?
