Pic stolen from troopbeast :wink:
I got this hooked up this weekend,well...mostly

I ran out of time and didnt hook up the illumination wire..at all.

Well it works fine,got in this morning(o'dark thirty) and when I started troop the display came on and was lite up w/o the lights being turned on.

My question is

What is the purpose of the illumination wire????

and after starting it displays "adjust compass" this goes off after a few miles.
if I go to altimeter it will display "adjust altimeter"

Whats up with that??
TIA

The illumination is to make sure you can see it at night.

In your manual for the truck it will have a section on adjusting it.. I had to do that with mine too.. It involves putting it in some mode and you having to drive around in a circle a couple of times.

ok here are a few pics.

I installed it in factory position,I didnt have the mount and didnt want to take down headliner anyways.
I used a pc of aluminum .06 x .625 x 6.50 drilled two holes for the meter assmbley and put it behind the headliner and sandwiched between the rearview mirror mount for extra support.

Tabitha's interior is chocolate so I picked up a can of expresso brown and took meter apart for paint
Took it apart for paint prep





Then reassembled and mounted

Installed


I did put the two screw covers back on after paint cured

hooked up wires and turned ignition on
First time on



Like I said before,I never hooked illumination wire up...this was this morning, Trooper running

This morning with out the illumination wire hooked up



I still have to "adjust" compass and altimeter

A big thanks goes out to Trooperbeast for all the help

Reminds me of NVG's. I really like the idea of having an altimeter, outside temp and roll indicator (although it doesn't have the roll indicator).
Yeah it does Van :?

if it's upside down,I'm in trouble :p

So does anyone have the calibration procedure for the compass? I have the factory service manuals and can't find it in there so I assume it must be in the owner's manual which I don't have yet. Searched the forum but didn't find anything..

EDIT- dug around and found the owners manual info online. I'll post the pages here in case someone else can use them later.

i don't remeber the year,newer one I put it in a 94 trooper,you could put it in anything really.

As for the calibration mine is constantly out of calibration I cross the 3/4 line several times daily just going to work :roll: when I am away from the "line" it works good.
The altimeter is off tho' it uses barometric pressure to "guess" at altitude..I have seen as much as 800 ft verifide by paper maps and gps

Cool idea. I'm guessing I could do this on my 95 as well. How hard is it to pull the wiring harness for this or do you guys hard wire it on the older models? What do you get at the pick n pull?
