Integra cluster into 91 CRX....

Just a repost of what I have here :

http://www.honda-tech.com/zerothread/2124811

I know some members have done this swap and was wondering if either of my thoughts on this were valid or not.

Copy of post :

All of the info that I have managed to read on the topic states one thing pretty consistently and that is :

"Cut the plugs off the CRX side of the wiring harness and solder."

Is there a way around this?

Thought #1 -

- Re-use the plug on the Integra side of the cluster but solder extensions / pins onto the ends of the wires that plug into the CRX side of the harness.

Thought #2 -

- De-pin both the CRX side of the harness and the Integra side and put
the CRX wires into the Integra plug.

Will they fit?

Are either of these ideas feasible? I ask because I would like to be able to switch back to the stock cluster if I fell like and and not have it be as much of a nightmare to do so and deal with lots of soldering / de-soldering and short wires etc...

Just cut the CRX plugs off, it's not too messy...you could put it back if you save your plugs.

But do you think that it is possible to do either of the two alternative routes that I mentioned?

2 isn't possible, from what I remember. 1 might be but it's a serious pain in my opinion.

I'm not sure, but I think the pins are different.

Just strip some of the insulation off a couple inches up from the CRX connectors, then solder in the wires from the integra clips. You'll have both clips so you can swap back to stock if you want. Only concern would be the extra space for the CRX clips.

I decided to de-pin the CRX side of the wires, leave the clips on and attach the Integra wires directly to the CRX clips.

I've got most of it done but I am now at a standstill.

Working Lights -

- Turn signals (right and left)
- Hazards
- High Beam
- Seatbelt Light
- Battery Light
- CEL
- Oil Light
- Hatch Light
- E-Brake Light

Working Gauges -
- Tach
- Fuel
- Temp

I have not yet hooked up the speedometer.

Now the problem..... The Cluster lights behind the speedo, tach, fuel gauge and the temp gauge are non functional. Because the above light and gauges all work I don't think that it is a ground issue.

I have checked -
- Ground
- Checked fuses and they are fine
- Looked for burnt contacts on the cluster and found none
- Have all of the hazard, dimmer, and defrost switches plugged in

Any help is much appreciated.

I've tried hooking up the red w/ black stripe Integra wire as well as the plain red wire to both the red and the red/black of the CRX side with no results.

Just to make sure they were getting juice I hooked up the e-brake light and that worked no prob so I know it is at least getting juice.

I highly doubt that all 3 of the main illumination bulbs burnt out.

Now that I think back about having this same problem, I feel like I fixed it by moving the ground around or trying out other grounds...perhaps.

It's worth a shot at least.

So try one other than the one that is on the CRX side of the plug?

I'll probably just tap into the dash mounting frame or something.

I think the issue (for me) was that there was a ground for just the lighting that was separate from the ground I thought existed, so I had to play around to find it...
