Recently i replaced my cluster with a used one bought from ebay. Everything works well except that the temp gauge ran straight to the red zone upon an early morning start. I changed out to the old cluster and the temp gauge behaves normally. I deduced that something is wrong with the cluster and not the sensor. However, can anyone advise me what went wrong and is there a way to fix it?
My ride is a 2000 EX, and the cluster is from a 2003 LX. I had to replace the cluster as the odometer needle was broken and badly smeared with alcohol cleaning agent.
