Unhappy Electronic Dash

I just purchased a 2019 Mustang GT with an electronic Dash. It came from Canada, so the speedometer is in kilometers. I tried to change it by following the instructions, but it only added a small window with the mph on it. The main speedometer still says 0 to 260.

Can anyone help?

Welcome to the AFM. I moved your thread to the S550 forum for better assistance.

Congratulations,,,,, I also just recently bought a used canadian GT. From a chevy dealership. 15000 miles, premium package with the digital display. I went to my local Ford dealership to see if it could be reflashed, and the answer was no. Ford made four different versions of the IP, depending on whether it was an automatic, or manual transmission, and metric, or imperial speed. I never did ask what they would charge me to swap it out,,,, but you can find them for around $1,000.00 online.

So I stopped by my local Ford Dealer this past Saturday to get a quote to replace the instrument panel. The parts department priced the ICP at $1,400.00-ish, and the service guy figured 1-1/2 hours to install and reprogram it. His electronic tech wasn't in, so that labor time may vary.

Holy crap... That is crazy it can't be changed. You would think they would have made it reprogrammable for the price this car comes a little more thought wouldn't have hurt. haha Maybe there should be an online place for people to swap panels as I am sure cars go both ways across the boarder. hmmmm

Yeah, I figure I'd be able to find someone to buy the metric one from me. I'm just coming up onto 20,000 miles, so I oughta do it sooner than later. When you program the mileage, you can go up, but you can't set it lower.

What you can go up, but not down? What sense does that make... haha I mean for those that want to cheat they simply get on with lower miles and install that so really that makes life harder for the honest person... ha Good grief.

I do want the digital gauge cluster if I talk myself into buying a new Mustang. Not to derail the conversation, but since the original question has been answered I wanted to ask how you liked it overall.

It's fun. I like it. I can't think of anything I don't like, other than the kph/mph thing. There are a couple of companies that offer a kit to retrofit S550s to the electronic display,,,,, Which entails some cutting of the dash, and updating the steering wheel controls.

The digital cluster bolts right in no modifications needed. Plug and play
You can pick them up a new one for 943.01 Now the programming, any dealership should not can or will SHOULD be able to program it for you no problem. The bad news is that the dealership can not change the miles displayed on the cluster so you’re car will read the wrong mileage. The good news is the real mileage is stored in the pcm so if you drive around on the new cluster you will have two cluster with the wrong miles.
If you buy a s550 (well any car for that matter)used check the mileage stored in the pcm

Wrong. The mileage and VIN number can be programed into the cluster, In fact Infotainment and Hellhorse Performance offer retrofit kits for those that want the digital display in their pre 2018 S550s. When ordering they ask for your vin, and mileage so they can program it in. Installing a Digital dash in a pre 2018 S550 requires some cutting inside the dash so that it will fit, as well as replacing the clock spring and buttons on the steering wheel.
