Wink Digital Dash suggestions?

Before I got my Tiburon, I was looking at a 1986 Nissan 300ZX, and loved the all-digital dash cluster it had, so I was wondering if anyone on here had suggestions for converting my 2005 Tibby to an all-digital Dash like the Nissan 300 had. Is it particularly difficult to do? This is my first car and I'm learning as I modify this.

Another side question: Would it be possible/hard to install a voice box into a Tiburon? I quite liked that feature in the 300 as well. (A voice comes on to tell you when doors are open and such)

I apologize in advance for my apostrophes, they become question marks for some reason. Racepak and Haltech and a handful of other companies make digital clusters. They?re not cheap and you would have to have your harness wired to work with it, which also wouldn?t be cheap. And you might even need a new ecu, but I?m not sure. So, there are options, but you?ll have to decide if it?s worth $1000+.

Cool Re: Digital Dash suggestions?

Anything can be done, big questions are:
What will it cost?
Are you doing the work?
Can the car be down while installing?
Is the car worth it?

You might be able to find an OEM cluster that sorta fits, then you need wiring diagrams for your car and the cluster, then figure out what wires need to go where.

For a real DIY, find a display (LED, TFT, OLED) that can fit. Then run a Ardunio or similar to drive the display. Then find all the inputs you want (may need A/D converters for a correct input), program the display, then wire it up.
Keep in mind that a car interior can go from below 0*F to 140*F, possibly beyond the operating range of an off the shelf display.

As to a voice box, same questions apply. Maybe an Ardunio board, wire inputs from key, door switches, etc. Run them into the board, then program it to operate some SS voice chips based on what circuit changes state.

I hated voice alerts, my pet peeve was, "the door is ajar". I would say back, "no it's not, it's a door.....not a jar....!".

Re: Digital Dash suggestions?

Using a display with a raspberry Pi (think OBD-Pi or similar) shouldn't be a total rewire of the dash. Could probably just use the OBD2 connection and feed all the info to the display (not entirely sure if it reads ALL the required info, but should have the basics). A lot of programming to get it how you want, fabrication to mount the display and make it look nice, but wiring should be simple. Voice box that just chimes on sensor inputs should be possible and easy with something like an arduino (once again down to programming). It all boils down to time money and patience.

The OP hasn't been on here since a couple weeks after starting this thread.
BTW, one issue is still the temp range the display may be subject to.

Re: Digital Dash suggestions?

sorry forgot to check the dates....

Displays should be fine in a car as long as they are not in direct sunlight. Just don't go for the cheapest setup.
