INSTRUMENT CLUSTER REMOVAL/INSTALLATION

CAUTION:

  • If configuration is not performed when the instrument cluster is replaced with a new one, the vehicle specification information is not stored in the instrument cluster and the system will not operate normally.

  • When performing configuration, it is necessary to read the vehicle specification information from the instrument cluster before replacing it. Connect the M-MDS to the vehicle and perform vehicle identification before removing the instrument cluster. The vehicle specification information is temporarily stored in the M-MDS.
