Hi guys 

Looking for an advice on how to make used cluster work. 

My original one has erratic rpm gauge operation. It works but stops in different spots every time ( fairly common issue). Got used cluster from 2010 same spec model but not entirely sure if I need to program it or just “divorce the old one and marry new one”. I’ve genuine Tech2 but not TIS security access.

Ive tried to set this up in the past but could find old enough laptop for the software download. Also, wonder what would happen to the mileage?? Any input would be greatly appreciated.

I'm pretty sure you cannot use a used cluster unless you do some eeprom work. It might work but the odometer will not accumulate.

Since this is after GM sold Saab to Stryker, I'm not too sure what they were doing as far as flashing (or anything else for that matter). Saab declared Bankruptcy in about 2011 or so, is my understanding. I've still been able to do the older (pre-2009) Saabs with a Tech 2, but not too sure whether that'll work on something after the sale to Stryker. As for the mileage thing, that seems to vary…
