My of 05 came with 03/04 auxilary gauges not the 05 gauges. I was told because my 05 was an eary model that some of them had the older gauges shipped with the car and that they check vin#s before they insatll them at the dealer. Is this true? If they put in the 05 gauges, will they work?

First Welcome to the SSR Party! Congratulations! :party


Second, the 03/04 gauges will not properly work on the 05. The 05 has one gauge that is different than the 03's and 04's. The entire gauge package needs to be replaced.

Use the search function to search the specifics listed in this forum. A good thread is entitled "2005 Auxilery Gauge Package" or just search gauges. Everyone who has had the wrong gauges installed has had to get them replace. Ask your dealer to get the right gauges and install them, preferablly before you accept delivery. I do not think your dealer is being dishonest. Most dealers really have no idea about the SSR. It is unfortunate the lack of knowledge they have. Thank goodness for this forum and it's true, straight answers.

The 05" has "two" gages that are different than the 03's and 04's. The 05" has "torque" instead of GPH and "outside temp" instead of trans temp.

Well....do the gauges work? If they work, then you got the right ones :)

I would definitely check them for operation first. Transitions from one model year to the next may not be perfect, and some holdover parts could happen - ie the 04connections for the auxiliary gauges could have still been in the parts bin for some of the first 05s.

If the 04 gauges are not operational, your dealership should be installing the 05 gauges.

Only the left gauge works. Dealer wants to see the car tomorrow.

Gauge Operation

If only the volt gauge (gauge on left in pod) is working this would indicate to me that it is the incorrect gauge cluster in the vehicle. If the gauges were shorted out (which some SSR owners have reported) I think they all stop working. I feel the dealer installed an 04'' cluster in error.
