Aux Gauge Harness (thank you Darth Martel)

Long story short, I bought the Aux Gauge console with the gauges from a member here. When I received the gauges I found out that I needed the harness that came with the kit. Since I did not buy the kit, I did not have the harness that is not sold separately from the kit. I contacted Darth Martel here from the forums (Jonathan) seeing that he had built the steering wheel button harness, I asked him if he could maybe have the time to build me a harness for the Aux Gauges. After all the research he did and follow-ups, He finally came through and build me a harness that is identical to the one sold with the kit. I hope this thread is in the right forum because I want you all to know that Jonathan is an outstanding member and truly contributes to this site.....

if any of you are considering buying a console out of a wrecked car, or anything like that, do it!!! contact Jonathan to see if he can build you a harness...his stuff is top quality, OEM type stuff... here are some pics of his build:











THANKS DARTH MARTEL!!!!!

Damm GM...spent about two hours with a great parts guy here who searched and called all over Gods green acre trying to find this wire harness, only to hit roadblocks at everyturn.

Although GM knows about this part, has this part, it has a part # from GM, is part of a "kit" thhat GM has, they WONT sell them here in Canada! WTF

Two wheel mayhem, there is heat shrink tubing and solder used for the splices. The butt crimps you see are because 2010IMBSS had the Aux gauge end of the harness with the wires coming out. I simply made the passthru part of the harness with the 3 wires spliced in for the Aux gauges and put butt crimps on the end so all he had to do was strip the 3 wires and crimp them. I even labeled the crimps for the appropriate pin on the Aux gauge connector. The guys that have received the steering wheel harnesses I've built can attest to the fact I don't build anything half-assed. By the way, where in Indiana are you located? I work in Indy.

I can build pretty much any harness that the Camaro uses. I just need to get the connectors for them and sometimes that is NOT an easy task. Most of the manufacturers have a minimum order amount in the hundreds. I've been dealing with it for years. It's very frustrating when you only need like 3 of something.

non HID headlights to HID

Is it possible to build a harness to convert a 3 prong wire harness (non RS) to attach to 4 prong HID headlight?

what do you mean "all the rest of the extra crap"? What extra crap =/ OEM stuff are far from crap. The Gauges cost around 370 for OEM. As for Halos I believe you have to actually change the whole light housing then. The OEM halos have to come with the projector housing with the HID headlamps...

I would agree go aftermarket halos. AACstyle has good ones, everyone uses them. As for Gauges, use OEM... believe me, they look so much better. =O! I've seen the Aftermarket ones... (theres only one) and I dont like it. Doesn't fit with the rest of the car.

Goodluck

What I meant by the "extra crap" was basically I am not a fan of leather seats and whatever else that goes into adding the RS package, I do love the look of the Halos and I am always a fan of having gauges and that only comes in the RS package, When I say "extra crap" I dont meant it is junk I just mean I dont have a use for it, I am sure it is nice stuff but not for me, so let me rephrase that"I dont want the extra goodies that come with the RS package" there now that I got that straight time to move on, lol.
do you have any idea of the cost to convert the console to OEM gauges through Chevy?or can I order my Camaro with just the added console gauges only and maybe the halo lights? I know I am not getting my Camaro yet but I am the type who loves to do his homework first, I will probably have all these extra parts that I want to add on before I even get the car. EDIT-I just went on line to Chevy and looked up the gauge cluster and they are $465, for that price I canget a set in Dakota digital and give the console my own personal touchm that of which I am good at.
I am also a type of person who likes to make custom items as well and I have been looking at the single gauges at Dakota Digital and with my fabricating finesse I am sure I can come up with something that looks OEM on the console, they make digital gauges in the same color as the digital in the dashboard of the Camaro, all I have to do is basically fabricate the center console bezel which shouldn't be to hard of a challenge, and when I make them I will post pics of my progress.

verboten, that shouldn't be a problem but, everything hinges on me being able to get the connectors. I'll look into it and get back with you.

I believe Caspers has those connectors in stock. We built these harnesses some time ago, probably during the prototype stage.

Thanks GNVenom... I sent them an email. They didn't appear to have those connectors on the site but, they might have them. Worth a shot.

I believe AACstyle has LED halos that you can put in your non-RS (halogen) headlights. You just have to cook 'em and crack 'em open. or you can send the assembly to them for installation.

and Ottobody on the forums has a harness to convert non-RS headlights to RS headlights if you decide to just replace the whole thing.

all kinds of goodies out there

I just had the gauges installed into my 1SS. I also did not want the pleather seats. The gauge pack cost me $389.00 plus 1/2 hour of labor. You can do it yourself, however you need a GM interior tool to remove the old console cover. I was afraid that I would break something getting the console apart. Otherwise, it's plug and play.
