    Default changing display

    I know bigger upgrades have been posted.
    I just wanted to know how much of a job is it to change the basic screen in the ls to the full display i have in my elegamce. I have a spare display.

    Vehicle : Vectra C

    Trim : Energy

    Engine : Z19DTH

    Year : 2005

    Mileage : 131,000

    Default

    Could do with a bit more info...
    Are both screens from pre mid 2004 (half-canbus) cdcr or ncdr radio's.?

    I think that most have 32 pin grey plugs.(all the high end screens do)

    If yours has the small 18 pin plug, then you need to look at bigmac's thread How 2 "TID to GID"

    You'll need to bog about with canbus and wiring changes if one is half can and one is full can.

    If they are both half canbus and have 32 pin grey plug socket, then its a matter of exchanging screens and paying for tech 2.

    Yes this is possible, just need to make sure you have already,( or that you get from a scrapper), the 32 pin grey plug and re-jig the wires...

    Compare with Bigmacs thread as mentioned above.

    Also remember the tech 2 to match the screen to the head unit.
