Would the same be true for a 95 CX hatch? Which hatch model came with a tach? I know it should be prewired and work so Im just wondering...

problem

you can change the whole unit that houses your speedometer+odometer, but you might notice some problems with your gas meter gauge acting funny and your "need more gas" light not coming up, or at least thats whats happening with me :(

oh, i never heard of that. i have a friend that put in an ex cluster in a 94 hatch and another friend that put a 00 si cluster in a 98 hatch, and neither of them had problems with it.

That's your gas tank sending unit that controls both the guage and low fuel light - might be getting stuck.

My low fuel light doesn't work at all anymore, and my gas guage never drops below about 1/8 of a tank anymore either. Pissed me off when I ran out of gas with it at 1/8 ;( Granted, I have 130k miles on my car (96 EX)
