Hi Guys,
I just replaced my dash loom, installed climate control, trip comp, high series BEM, and migh series Cluster

Now firstly the trip computer - it does nothing, no lights digits nothing, however when i plug my old cluster in, its shows digits n all the rest, just when i plug the high series in theres nothing.

Now the climate control - nothing at all either, buttons to nothing, no digits or anything

Cluster works fine - any help appreciated.
Thanks
Ben

Ok it seems they do work just the bulbs are not providing enough light - they work and i put good ones in but they are just really really dim.

Now i know theres a resistor mod ur suppose to do to the cluster - but do i need to do this when i replaced the cluster to a high series?

Firstly some additional information would be slightly useful.

What type of a car is it and what model?

Exaxtly what did you replace? The actual loom, as in you pulled out the whole dash and put your wiring loom in? Or did you just replace the components, Trip Com etc.

Did you acquire and replace the headlight switch? The Fairmont one is different to enable the variable dimming function. An educated stab in the dark is that you still are using the GLi type one with the two dimming settings.
