From what I'm finding, the shift plate/panel for gauges is not sold separately, although you can buy the gauges separately... ...which is what I did.

One vendor wrote back to me that the wiring is different and won't work. The harness I bought is supposed to be a 2013 part, so I'll see later if it works...

Stay tuned; same bat time, same bat channel.

Good news/bad news:

I just hooked up my 4 gauge pack and wiring harness. Everything was there and fit exactly as would be expected with GM parts. The harness wiring all matched up with the harness wiring on the plug in the car; no missing wires. I fired up the car, but the gauges were inert as if no power applied. Since all the wiring is in the car's harness, this leads me to think that something must be reprogrammed in the car's BCM. I think an earlier poster in this thread mentioned that.

I'm now trying to obtain the correct shift plate/panel so that I can hardmount all components, then I'll make an appointment with the dealer to see about reprogramming. I think My Link needs an update anyway.

Any thoughts would be appreciated!

Thanks,

Tara

Thumbs up

Latest info:

I was able to order a shift plate/panel for the M6 with gauges. I also am getting the custom harness from Gen5DIY and Ofer says that it's plug and play. Hopefully, everything will be here late next week and I can get it all installed.

Thanks to all on the Camaro5 forum!

The parts are in transit right now. The shift panel is scheduled for Friday delivery. Ofer said that the harness was to ship yesterday, but Gen5DIY hasn't officially sent a confirmation yet. I'm getting antsy to know if it's in route yet. I'd sure like to install everything this weekend!

Lightbulb Update!

Update:

Friday the shift plate/panel arrived. I assembled everything and it looks really great! I used small wire tire / zip ties to assemble the gauges to the plate since it's missing fasteners and clips for that part. Doubling the zip ties makes it really solid with no movement or possibility for squeaks or rattling.

The gauges I have are metric, but the range of the needles is identical to English. I'm just waiting on Ofer's custom wiring harness to finish it off and install it. I hope it arrives later today in priority mail. It was showing a delivery date of Friday, but it lied! USPS, our friend!

Another update later!

Happy weekend to all!

Tara

They work!

I just wrapped up the install of my gauges and they work! Happy Happy! Ofer's special prepared PnP cable fit great and everything hooked up like it was meant to be there.

Luckily, I read other threads about removing the power outlet and traction control switch, so I didn't damage them a bit. You have to remove the metal sleeve first from inside the power outlet, then the plastic liner and flap easily unsnap. I only needed a small thin flat-tip screwdriver for the entire install.

First pic is the stripped original shift panel and the parts reinstalled on the new one.

The second is Gen5DIY's super-duper PnP harness. I was able to install the cable in the body harness with instructions here: http://http://www.gen5diy.com/image/...ge harness.pdf

The rest of the photos are just of the completed console. Any questions, ask away!
