Default Re: Taurus Cluster

It wouldn't be impossible.
You would need to know what each wires function is off the Taurus and what the wires are off the ranger. Then splice the wires together. There would be some functions that would not work.

I know my moms Taurus looked like that and it displayed the fuel and miles till empty which the ranger wouldn't be able to do.

This is what my moms looked like.

Mykhael, the only problem I could think of would be if the Taurus uses a CAN-based information input to the IC. Which, I think it does. IIRC the Ranger uses a standard analog input to trigger just the basic lights.

I just think that it would be a decent mod to have a 120mph speedo in a vehicle that didn't come with one.
I guess...?

What's the point of doing all that work for a cluster from a taurus of all things... At least put in something from a cool car

ie



If you put a taurus one in there, nobody is gonna notice and say "WOAH!! Is that a REAL TAURUS cluster?"

But if you had a mustang one in there or something wild.. then people would notice... THAT would be worth the time IMO.

Swapping out a plain cluster for another plain cluster is pointless.

What's next?? REARVIEW MIRROR UPGRADE FROM A 92 TOPAZ... YEAH.. THATS RIGHT, WE SWAPPED SOME MERCURY INTO THIS SHIT!

I never said I'd like a cluster from a Taurus. I said

"" would be nice to have a speedo that registers more than 85 though! ""

Mustang gauges in Rangers aren't new either. Nor are the after market gauge set ups including but not limited to digital.

At any rate, I was just saying that I would like a gauge that reads more than 85.
