I would like to get an LED light bar that is lighting up the current gear for the automatics. Is there such a mod available? The search didn't produce anything...
SPDRCR5 - Could you clarify that? Where on the cluster is an indicator of what gear you are in and what year model did the appear in?spdrcr5 said:This already exists from the factory. It's built into the instrument cluster.
This is exactly what I have been looking for... The next challenge is to present it in a worthwhile manner where it is actually of value to see at a glance.... If you can come up with a customer friendly way to tap into these signal points, I would give this a whirl too....Gambling element said:That's a cool Idea! The 2007 (five speed Auto) has 5 shift solenoids A, B, C, D, E. They receive a 12V signal from the PCM behind the glove box. The tricky part is each solenoids does not represent a single gear. For first A, B, and C are powered up. Second B and D. Thrid only C. Forth only A. Fifth A, C, and D. Reverse only E. 12v LEDs could be used and by connecting them between the solenoids a single LED could represent each gear. I might try it....:|
Gambling element said:I made this modification that will show the current gear selected in the 5 speed automatic transmission. The LED's light up in a patten of a 5 speed manual. It works with the following anomaly... In Neutral the First illuminates and in Reverse First and Third illuminates. But I think I can live with that, these are not automatically selected. If anybody is interested in the details I have a word document with instructions.

That's a display for my homemade "Climate Control Computer". I have attached a picture of the display in the three modes. In each display the temperature inside of the car (CABIN) is 84.2 °F. The top display is in the HEAT Mode it uses the center dial of the Honda temperature control to set the DIAL temperature ( in this case 69.8 °F). This is like a thermostat setting. The computer adjust the air blend door (the pervious occupation of the Honda temperature control) to maintain the CABIN at the DIAL temperature . The "1" under HEAT is the blend door position 1 is full cool and 15 is full heat. In this case the CABIN is hotter than the DIAL so it's set to cool air. The center display is selected by pressing the Honda "AC" button. This is the AC mode. Same principal as the HEAT mode but the Compressor is cycled to maintain the temperature. COOL indicates the compressors running "- -" indicates it's off. The lower display is the MANUAL CONTROL mode were everything operates like stock. To enter or exit the MANUAL CONTROL mode hold the Honda "AC" button in for 2 seconds. If the AC is on when you do this it will return to the AC mode if not it will return to the HEAT mode. I know what you thinking too much free time....EXwSCnose said:...and what is the LCD display below the gear selector for???? ...
Well, -- see -- you are fortunate...typer98 said:I still don't understand why you would need this? I can look at my speedo and then my tach and figure out what gear I'm in in roughly 1.5 seconds...it's really not that hard...unless you've got an 07, I can see that extra gear getting in the way
