We can compare the 95 wiring to your 03 wiring no problem will see if I can find the schematics and then build a map of the changes
Regardless the speedometer in 95 used the VSS in the transfer case/tailhousing, your 03 the speedo signal comes from the rear axle/ abs computer, that is the biggest obstacle but easily overcome. You can simply use your 03 head and needle in the 95 cluster. Same goes for the rest of the gauges, you can likely unscrew most of your 03 stuff and screw it onto the 95 basically making a 95 looking cluster with 03 guts
Now we have two threads going on this LOL
My 88 BII cluster is built up of 1988,93,97 and autometer parts, I plan to 3d print a new bezel to make it look a little better where I added my double din head unit and dash mounted 2" gauges then it will be "done".
I love it, the factory clusters are so "meh" these days leave alot to be desired with all the new tech avail> the dakota digital stuff is so expensive, and looks like a 88 camaro dash when done. I like the idea of LED for all indicators and a Ipad mini to be the actual gauges
You mentioned that my Speed-O input comes from my Rear Axle... ABS Sensor, I had my sensor disconnected for four years and didn't even know it, the Speed-O worked ok !
The wiring was too a little to short for the Lift and the movement I needed in the suspension so it unplugged on its own, the Mechanic that did the work on it didn't say anything because it plugged in on the lift but as things stretched the wiring didn't.
I started to have a problem with the braking of the truck... rear wheels locking up, back end coming around on a hard stop... SOL was my approach and then Light Dawn on the old Brain... something has to be wrong with the rear ABS. Checked it out and found the connector dangling !
So the Speed-O had to get its single somewhere else... where, not for me to say, and I couldn't even if I wanted to.
I checked out the link you posted, then went in deeper, all the digital stuff looks good but it is getting to look alike now and that is what I don't want, beside the Tachometer on the top of the Dash.
In my '88 Ranger STX, as I mentioned before, I used an aluminums panel, cut to size, and fitted with five Autometer Gauges, a Speed-O, and four smaller function gauges, I thought it looked good and at Truck Meets there was always someone saying it looks good. This time around I started off wanting to do something simple and when I heard the '95 Cluster would work I found one... NOW... I'm as confused as I can be and as I said I will step back, get a little more info and get back to you.
Do you have any circa 2000 range of clusters with speed-o only ? ( I think I asked that a few times already, sorry if it is a pita ) !
