Hello, because of your findings, I was able to purchased mine based on your cluster explanation. I waited months since the cluster was supposed to have 8k miles, which it was in vain because it has 1k miles.I've done my swap on Mazda 2 (Demio). If the car is equipped with auto Aircon it's straight forward swap, with manual it isn't - Aircon and defrost would not work.
Now, the issue. I de-tuned my car after getting a message, but that message still persist: "unable to identify vehicle if pcm has a custom tune installed, please enter the strategy/calibration name of the part of factory pcm". This is why I was unable to connect to FORSCAN. So far, I did find that information about other cars, but about the Mazda 2 so far.
I found a Mazda website PCM Reflashing, but I do need a separate hardware to do so, which am sure will be price. Unsure if that will give me the information needed.
The cluster and ADD works and illuminates.
I need help, someone.
