That was an awesome explanation dude. Thank you.

It's too bad that every EVA car sold this area is owned by a crazy person that wants like $5,000 for it!
No problem bud, lol you should of PM'd me! And I believe those crazy people are everywhere, I struggle with the same issue sadly... couple grand for a non-running parts car, no way!

However I do think on the left hand side of the k-body dashes can either be an electronic tach or a system check (picture of the car, with lights of problem areas). The voice system does piggy-bag electrically off this. It is the 11-function system.

Similar to the G/J body, but systems check is in the center below the navigator, this is the 24 function system

Adding EVA no matter what is an installation from scratch, the 11 function system would be less wires than the 24 function. I put the 24 function system in my 89 Daytona Shelby out of an 86 Laser XT, complete except for the brake pad and oil dipstick sensor and it took many late nights, tore entire dash apart and most of the car to run wiring for sensors.

You will need all of the plugs, the EVA ones are very unique like a SNES cartridge. If you want most of the sensor functions to work you will need to rob the sensors off the donor car, some are still available new from rockauto as well. A factory service manual for your car and the doner car is pretty much a must as well.

This is a link to a very helpful site, but it doesn't have all the info you need to complete the job

Re: Digital Dash Disasters

Is the external board on the K-body units part of EVA?

Also once you have retrofitted a digidash, how hard is it to add EVA?

Re: Digital Dash Disasters

Those k-body ones look very simular to the daytona ones, my bet would be that they are the same - at least power up wise, if you attempt this, use a alkaline 9V battery, or two 6V flashlight batteries in series (to make 12V). Using a power supply or 12V car battery risks too much current if things go wrong. The alkalines will not supply enough current to blow circuitry in most cases.

What you need is someone with an 86 factory service manual to scan the k-body digital dash section!

Also, for testing, just use alligator clip leads, you will only need 5 clip leads total for the J-body digital dash. If you are seriously considering putting one of the J-body digital dashes into one of your cars, why not solder leads onto each pin in each connector, protected by heat shrink on each pin, extending out a few inches and then crimp on your choice of connector. This will do the job, and something I wouldn't hesitate to consider if I haven't been as lucky as I have finding connectors for my Systems check and voice alert modules.

Re: Digital Dash Disasters

I do not have the plugs for the J-Body clusters. There haven't been any J-Bodies with these clusters in local yards for quite some time to get any from.

In regards to the threads, yes I have looked at those and printed them out. The colors of the sockets vs. the notches on them are swapped around. Look really close at the diagrams vs. the back of my clusters.

I can't find anything on the K-Body Lebaron clusters.

Re: Digital Dash Disasters

You mean pinouts for the clusters, or actual internal schematics?

Did you check out my FAQ submissions? :

Re: Digital Dash Disasters

For the all black clusters, if you have the plugs for them, RED and BLUE/WHITE goes to 12v. Black/Orange and Black/Green goes to negative.

Re: Digital Dash Disasters

The diagrams read from where the wires enter the connector not the open end that plugs on.

Digital Dash Disasters

I now have FOUR digital clusters I'm having a hell of a time with. I have looked at threads here and on AllPar and I still can't find a wiring diagram to match my clusters exactly. PLEASE help me get this things wired up and tested. I also have someone interested in the J-Body clusters but I really want make sure they're still good.

This is where I'm at. The WHITE and BLACK plugs for the J-Body clusters don't match the ones in this thread:

The notches and colors are reversed.









In this pic, the cluster on the left is from a 1984 Lebaron non-turbo convertible and the one on the right is from a 1986 Lebaron convertible w/ turbo




They both appear to have the same plugs? I don't have the plugs from the '84 but I do have the ones from the '86 and they fit?
