It's great to see things are working out for most of the people installing this hud. I'm most impressed the guys that are taking this on with limited time working on vehicles and getting thru it. I think I can speak for the ones that have done it, as you already know it looks worse then it is. And the second time around would be a breeze compared to the first time. The mechanics I know most of them don't like this kind of work. Patience goes along way with this paticualar job. Can't be a Bull in a china shop! Ofer your the man for spearheading this whole thing! Pat yourself on the back guys! Job well done.

Harness arrived in the mail from today, thanks Ofer! Now all I'm missing is the HUD unit itself and I'm ready to go. The initial plan was to hold off on ordering the HUD for a while but I'm tempted to get it now and do the install this winter while the car is parked and I have multiple days to work on it.

I did a volt steering column yesterday and this worked great. The picture is from there website I thought the device would be more in the way of trying to work under the dash, but it wasn't. I thought I would pass it along. It looks easy enough to make yourself. here's the website dashsurfer.com

Most likely next month I'll order the HUD ass'y. Then to find a place indoors to do the install.

This was the one item I was wanting from the 2011, and thanks to eveyones hard work, Now it's possible for all of us.

Thanks Again

Well after I finished yesterday I had a "Service Airbag" on the DIC. No big deal I thought, I'll recheck the connections today. So today I unplug and replug the passengers side connection and removed the steering wheel one and reseated those 2. Still have the "Service Airbag". I connected 2 different readers up to the OBDII connection but neither had a code.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated...

make sure the OBDII reader your using will read sir codes. not all will. such as autozone store would not read them. so if it won't read it.....it can't clear the code, because it can't access the SIR control module. if at anytime during the dash removal you key up with any air bag disconnected, you will get a SIR light on the I.P. cluster, sometimes even though you have them all plugged back in. I don't remember right off hand if the module will clear itself after so many ignition cycles, like most of the other modules if the there really isn't a fault code present. I will check service information and get back.

I didn't see any plugs on the side curtains. I had assumed they were under the roof liner.

I assumed they could read the SIR codes but I at least tried (an older Acton and a new SCT). I haven't read through the service manual completely on this yet. It's very disjointed when it comes to diagnostics.

I did turn the key on to put it in neutral but I don't remember if I had already disconnected the air bags yet. It was only two days ago.....

Thanks,
Don O

did you have the seats out? usually you have to disconnect an sir connector, maybe didn't get put back on. if you don't know any connector that is yellow is sir. somethings I have run across over the years.........I have seen the shorting bars inside the the yellow connectors cause a problem, if bent and stay shorted when connected back together will set a light. also sir coil needs to go back on as it came off. can't be rotated 360 degrees then put back on. otherwise when the steering wheel is rotated full turn one way or the other, the winding inside the coil itself will break and set a code. hope some of this helps. make sure the two sir connectors on the steering air bag are pushed all the way down, flush against the air bag, no gap. finding what code set will really help in diagnosing problem.

I only could find history codes clear after 100 ignition cycles.

Thanks guys. I think I might have turned the key on with one of them disconnected. I did not remove the seats. I double checked the steering wheel and passenger side connections today. All are secure. Guess I can go and try 100 starts tomorrow and see if that clears it

I guess only dealers have the special readers for the SIR codes, bummer.
