Try sending another one. He might be busy so it might take awhile to hear back. I posted in the contributor thread during an afternoon and didn't get a response back until the next morning.

Its plug and play. I just did one this weekend and works with the ext. wire plugs from the old unit. Only problem with mine is the temp gauge doesn't work. have to figure that one out. I also rolled the mileage back to my old unit. Found a Great thread on how to do it.

that's odd, my temperature gauge didn't work properly either. Read higher than a stoner. just use my scan gauge now.

My temp gauge works fine, reads a little cooler than the other one, my cluster came from a same year explorer (97) but I doubt that has anything to do with it.

I must've read the how-to a half dozen times before I started the install. The hardest part for me was making sure I cut the headliner correctly. Once that was done the rest was really easy. It's just a pita to run all the wires to their specified locations.
