AWESOME write up, but holy shiet that is a ton of work when a proper code reader could tell you all that.

I'm not 100% sure that's what they are... Just guessing...

If this works with OBDII cars as well.... EPIC WIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I also have a 97 with the same "Christmas Tree Dash" (with an SRS light thrown in there).

Great writeup!

What are the numbers where your odometer reading usually is?

There's a feature in the odo LCD that allows you to view the engine RPM in realtime numerically; aka "digital tach readout" When I took that picture I was using this feature.... Displayed is the engine RPM, and 07 next to it is the menu ID for that digital tach function.

Next to your lcd in your odo is the push button to reset your trip counter. with your key out of the ignition push it and hold it in. while your holding it in, put your key in the ignition and turn it to pos. 3. you will see a menu pop up in your lcd. push the trip reset button till you get to test 15; when you get too 15 hold it in until you see "L=OFF" now push the button till you get to number 7 and voila; you have a digital tach in your odo.
