These message centers offer an easy-to-read numerical display of your gauges that you can cycle through with the push of a button. The LCD message centers feature metric conversions, allowing you to cycle between MPH or KPH, as well as Fahrenheit & Celsius. The display centers also show your odometers, a clock and a variety of performance readings that can be manually reset during normal operation. These readings consist of a high speed recall, high RPM recall, 0-60 MPH (0-100 KMH) time, 1/4 mile time, and 1/4 mile end speed (trap speed).
This Dakota Digital instruments system also includes a Demonstration Mode that cycles through the instrument readouts while the vehicle is standing still, making for a great way to show off your system at a show or event. The system provides fully adjustable warning points that will alert you in the digital message centers of any potential problems with your Mustang.

- Speedometer - 0-160 MPH Analog, 0-255 MPH Digitally

The gauges feature a custom carbon fiber appearance that is enhanced by an appealing red or blue light display. This display will turn on at night with its built-in illumination that is triggered once the headlights or parking lights are activated.This VHX gauge cluster also shows the various indicators for your 79-86 Mustang including turn signals, high beams, check engine, parking brake, cruise control and wait to start (when equipped).
Some of the features that you may not see are a micro-controlled precision stepper motor and laboratory-grade solid state sensors that provide tremendous accuracy. These sensors are primarily for water temperature, oil pressure and the speedometer pulse generator. The speed efficiently converts a mechanical speedometer cable to digital when necessary, while the oil pressure and water temp sensors have 1/8" NPT sensors along with bushings to adapt to 1/4", 3/8" & 1/2" NPT. The other displays will work with any sensor you have, whether it is stock or aftermarket.

This carbon fiber face gauge instrument cluster assembly from Dakota Digital has an outboard control module that delivers a sense of simplicity to the system. Instead of routing bundles of wiring straight to the instruments, they are routed into the control box which is tucked away under the dash in a convenient location. A single ribbon cable then connects the control module to the display, wiping out any potential clutter. This system has on-board diagnostics that help make troubleshooting easier, as well as terminal strips that make sure any termination of a wire is safe & secure.
